Environmental classes seem like a nuisance, but they’re a requirement for many projects. The EPA, DOL, and DEP all have their own requirements for environmental classes. Generally, environmental classes are required for employees working with environmental permits. These permits and training requirements are designed to help ensure as small of an environmental impact as possible. Our safety consultants at The Safety Group offer environmental safety certification programs in New York and Philadelphia to help meet all environmental permit training requirements.
Types of Environmental Permits
When an environmental permit is required, training through environmental classes is also required. Types of environmental permits include:
- Hazardous Waste Permits
- Title V Permit
- Part 71 Permit
- 112 (R)
These permits are designated by a variety of factors. Location on tribal land can influence the type of permit required. Additionally, the expected environmental impact area (such as air or water) will also influence the permit required. The EPA has specific protocols to outline the compliance requirements of all facilities with environmental impacts. Even if you’re not required to have a specific EPA permit, it is beneficial to ensure that all employees are trained through environmental safety certification programs in New York to ensure total EPA compliance.
