Lion Technology, Inc., a nationally known regulatory compliance firm, will be in Tukwila Sept. 13-14 for a two-day workshop about hazardous-waste management.

The Lafayette, N.J.-based firm will conduct the workshop, titled “Hazardous/Toxic Waste Management,” at the Doubletree Guest Suites Southcenter, 16500 Southcenter Parkway, Tukwila.

Annual training is mandatory for employees who generate, manage or dispose of hazardous waste regulated under the federal Resource Conservation and Recovery Act. RCRA-regulated waste consists of chemicals or other substances that are considered hazardous, such as petroleum products, explosive or corrosive chemicals.

Training must be job-specific, covering the specific waste-management procedures, such as waste classification, proper container and tank storage, emergency response and disposal.

Lion Technology Director of Corporate Training Scott Dunsmore noted that proper hazardous waste handling, management and disposal is essential, especially in light of recent superfund liability cases.

Since 1977 Lion has provided training to meet companies’ regulatory-compliance needs.

Tuition for the Tukwila workshops is $795 per person, with group discounts available. Registration includes hands-on instruction, course reference materials, networking luncheon, certificate of achievement and one year of follow-up support.

Sign-in is at 7:30 a.m.; the workshop begins 8:30 a.m. the first day and 8 a.m. the second day.

Pre-registration is recommended. To register, call 888-546-6511, or visit www.lion.com.
