|Description|| RCRA Training
The training describes general procedures for the packaging, storage and disposal of hazardous chemical substances that are generated from University operations (including laboratories, administrative units, and physical plant operations). This training does not apply to disposal of radioactive or biohazardous wastes. The session covers hazardous waste characteristics, the proper packaging of waste materials, the correct labeling of waste and the university waste collection protocol. EHS coordinates disposal of chemical waste from University operations. The cost of normal waste disposal is borne by EHS, rather than the individual department or laboratory, in part to eliminate any hesitation to properly manage chemical wastes. Please note that laboratories that create preventable situations which exceed normal disposal costs or where “special circumstances” create a greater expense, departments and/or Laboratory principal Investigators may have shared disposal costs.
Who Should Attend?
This training is mandatory for all personnel who handle and generate, or potentially generate, hazardous waste on the campus of Baylor University.
