It’s Illegal

Non-compliance is illegal. The EPA has set a law known as the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). There are also regulations established by OSHA overseeing the disposal of hazardous waste, along with various state and federal laws that have to do with what happens when compliance measures are not followed. Don’t run the risk of failing safety inspections or being shut down. Familiarize yourself with all of the Federal, State, and Local regulations for your area.

Higher Stress

Hazardous waste management is a dangerous task. However, when all the of proper procedures are observed, it can greatly reduce an atmosphere of confusion and stress in your facility. Any issues or concerns that come up generate even more work for everyone to handle, meaning your employees could be overworked to deal with the latest crisis.
