Waste manifests are required by RCRA, and they follow waste shipments from creation to disposal. Filling them out accurately is crucial for compliance, and mis-filled waste manifests are the number one cause of RCRA citations. So getting this right matters a lot.
RCRA training is one of the most important aspects of being compliant. And lack of it is also among the most frequent causes of citations for noncompliance. The requirements for RCRA training are often state-specific, and documentation and proper coverage are particularly important. Training also affects employees differently depending on their job role.
The Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) is the main federal law that governs solid and hazardous waste disposal in the USA. It was passed in 1976, as pollution from improper disposal of hazardous waste and the lack of a federal framework to ensure safe disposal became increasingly problematic.
