Presenter: M. Manna, PPG Industries, Inc., Springdale, PA.

Many Industrial Hygienists employed in industrial settings have environmental responsibilities despite having little previous experience. This presentation will review the federal requirements for managing hazardous waste from an Industrial Hygienist’s perspective. A large focus of the program will deal with the requirements around large quantity generators, managing bulk waste tanks, air emissions monitoring for leak detection and repair and an overview of the EPA’s recent enforcement activity.
