EPA Environmental Procedures Checklist: Hazardous Waste (HW) Generator Standards Mobile App
An Environmental Management System (EMS) is an organized approach to ensure that environmental actions are well managed at all levels.
How does it work?
Environmentally accountable management at sites needs to go beyond conventional programs that manage waste and promote chemical, biological, or radiation safety. An EMS is a key component to an existing environmental program. Facilities have the ability to design processes to conserve energy and water, and actively purchase other environmental preferable products. The benefits to an EMS are not just environmental, but also fiscal.
The EPA Environmental Procedures Checklist: Hazardous Waste (HW) Generator Standards mobile app covers written plans/procedures for HW determination, EPA/State HW identification number, HW shipment manifest, hazardous waste storage, required records, exporters or importers, preparedness/prevention and emergency/contingency plans, tranportaion and recycling.
