How often is environmental compliance training required?

by Doug

Environmental compliance training is required in certain ways for various facilities with different environmental permits.

The knowledge of environmental regulatory issues is one of the largest issues facing businesses and organizations today. Regulations often exist on the city, county, state, and federal level, meaning you'll have to deal with 2, 3, 4, or more agencies to find out what rules, laws, and regulations you need to be following. Trust us, it's a nightmare, and one way to help lessen that never ending drudgery is though environmental compliance training, ensuring your staff knows exactly what they need to.

What is environmental compliance training? 

by Doug

We explain the concept of environmental training from a compliance perspective.

Environmental compliance isn't just a nice idea, it's mandatory. You are required to adhere to and follow any and all applicable environmental laws and regulations that impact your operation and facility. Just like following tax codes or obeying local traffic laws, environmental laws can't be ignored. The problem is, they can be tricky, complicated, and usually require a considerable amount of training.

Why do I need stormwater training?

by Doug

Here we discuss why you need annual training, who benefits from it, and what its goal is.

A lot of our clients initially came to us when they needed help with their stormwater permits. Whether they received a violation, needed to get covered under a permit or needed help with their stormwater plan, at the end of the day, they all had some new rules to follow which includes things like sampling, inspections, or stormwater training.

One of those rules was annual training, to which a lot of folks would turn around and say "Why do I need stormwater training?"

What is Stormwater Training?

by Doug

Here we discuss what stormwater training is and what your staff members might be trained upon.

A lot of our clients turn to us when it's time to get environmental training. Whether it's a new employee, site conditions change, or it's developing a system of training throughout the year to ensure total understanding with rules and regulations, we help companies stay in compliance with their various permit's training requirements.

A common problem that we see, and what brings a lot of folks who are out of compliance into our office, is many people don't do their required environmental training. Or, their training is done so poorly and inconsistently that it ends up spreading misinformation, often resulting in regulators issuing fines, penalties, and violations in one way or another.

SPCC Training vs Stormwater Training – What's the difference?

by Doug

Training on your environmental permits & approvals is often required to stay in compliance. Failure to train can cost you in fines, penalties, and violations, and endanger your employees because they won't understand what to do, how to act, or how to treat an emergency. Here we discuss why two key training areas often incorrectly get combined, and why you should never mistake these as the same thing.

One of my staff members just finished up an SPCC Training workshop recently. We had a large client in a room, and we went over, in detail, their SPCC Plan, what it is, why they need one, the works. At the end of the day, one of their guys thanked us for helping to kill two birds with one stone, and we really helped their staff a lot. Confused, my guy asked what he meant.

"Well we just got SPCC training. That covers stormwater training for our permit, right? We don't need to train again, do we?"
