Lion Technology Director of Corporate Training, Scott Dunsmore, a national expert on hazardous waste management, stresses that proper hazardous waste handling, management, and disposal is essential. “With a slow economy and budget tightening, the reflex is to go towards shorter and cheaper training. However, with enforcement initiatives on the increase, short changing your training puts you at risk of costing you more in the long run. EHS excellence is critical to business success.”
