Cutting Environmental Training in a Down Economy May Be Costly

LAFAYETTE, N.J. /Send2Press Newswire/ — Many employees have been forced to wear more than one hat because of corporate downsizing and restructuring. Sound familiar? As a result of this widespread trend, companies have assigned environmental compliance responsibilities to untrained people who are often overwhelmed and unprepared to handle their additional role. Lion Technology Director of Corporate Training, Scott Dunsmore, an acclaimed expert on environmental regulations, understands the dilemma. He stresses that, “It is imperative for industry to keep up-to-date with changing regulations. EH&S excellence can provide your company with a competitive advantage in today’s business environment.”

Cutting back on training to save money during an economic downturn can actually be very costly in the long run. Companies run the risk of steep fines for violations, exorbitant legal fees, and irreparable public scrutiny. Dunsmore says, “Quality education has never been more important and knowing the latest regulatory options can actually reduce operating costs and improve efficiency.”

New hires and managers can get up to speed on today’s environmental mandates by attending an intense two-day training program. Lion Technology Inc., a nationally-recognized regulatory compliance training firm, will present its “Complete Environmental Regulations” workshops in the area this month. This is ideal for managers and supervisors needing an overview of all the environmental regulations pertaining to air, water, chemical, and waste management.

The two-day programs will be held in Mobile, AL on September 14-15; Houston, TX on September 17-18; Dallas, TX on September 21-22; Little Rock, AR on September 24-25; Kansas City, MO on September 28-29; Seattle, WA on October 19-20; Oakland, CA on October 22-23; Los Angeles, CA on October 26-27; and Las Vegas, NV on October 29-30.

The program is also essential for those who are applying for ISO 14000 registrations and must know how to systematically identify all “relevant legal requirements” as required by the International Organization of Standardization (ISO).
