Amendment Proposed To California Hazardous Waste Generator and TSDF Training

The California Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) has proposed revisions to the state’s unique Title 22 hazardous waste facility requirements. In addition to permitted treatment, storage & disposal facilities (TSDF) portions also apply to large quantity generators (LQG) of hazardous waste in the State.

The proposed hazardous waste revisions include a new reporting requirement; by March 1 each year, hazardous waste generators will be required to submit a report to DTSC that certifies that every employee has been trained on all requirements applicable to his or her job. The proposed revisions will also require employers to keep employee-signed or -certified hazardous waste training records on site and makes numerous changes to the training content required.
