Environmental Management Systems (EMS)

Historically, companies have managed their own environmental challenges in response to external pressure from government agencies, environmental interest groups, and citizens focusing mainly on regulatory compliance. Today, companies recognize the importance of sound environmental management practices that result in economic gain. The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) is a worldwide federation of national standards bodies. International standards covering environmental management are intended to provide organizations with the elements of an effective environmental management system (EMS) that can be integrated with other management requirements and help organizations achieve environmental and economic needs. The standards require that "each organization shall establish, document, implement, maintain, and continually improve an environmental management system in accordance with the requirements of the international standard and determine how it will fulfill these requirements." Additionally, all employees and contractors of ISO 14001 certified companies must be aware of the importance of conformance with the company's environmental policy, the roles and responsibilities associated with achieving conformance to the environmental policy (including preparedness and response requirements), and the potential consequences of departure from specified operating procedure. In this course, learners will be introduced to the important concepts of EMS and find out how these apply to their own company's EMS. SkillSoft Corporation is not affiliated with or sponsored by the ISO and does not have a relationship with the ISO. As such, SkillSoft is not authorized or approved to act on behalf of the ISO, and is not authorized by ISO to sell or deliver ISO owned products or services.

Hazardous Waste Generator (RCRA)

This course provides basic information on hazardous waste determination and characterization. In addition, this course describes the three types of generator status (Conditionally Exempt Small Quantity Generator, Small Quantity Generator, and Large Quantity Generator) along with applicable requirements. Generators must manage their hazardous waste per the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) regulations. Thus, accumulation, labeling, and other management requirements are described for both satellite accumulation areas and 90-day accumulation areas. Lastly, the importance of, and methods for, waste minimization and spill prevention and response are defined. The content in this course is designed to comply with the intent of the applicable regulatory requirements. Learner objectives for this course are to identify and characterize all wastes, properly label and manage waste containers, use a manifest when RCRA waste is transported, properly dispose of hazardous waste, prepare waste generation reports, and maintain compliance records.
  • identify EPA standards for hazardous wastes
  • determine the waste classification that results from mixing substances
  • identify safe use of containers holding hazardous substances
  • identify characteristics of hazardous and non-hazardous wastes
  • identify the requirements for accumulation areas
  • identify controls required for hazardous waste containers and container tracking

Spill Prevention and Control

This course provides information about hazardous materials, spill control, and confinement methods.

The content in this course is designed to comply with the intent of the applicable regulatory requirements. Learner objectives are to define hazardous materials, recognize where spills are likely to occur, specify work practices that can prevent spills from occurring, define the goals of spill control, identify actions to take when responding to a spill of hazardous materials or waste, identify response procedures for personnel who discover a spill, and define the terms containment and confinement. The course was developed and reviewed with subject matter support provided by certified subject matter experts and industry professionals. Please note, the course materials and content were current with the laws and regulations at the time of the last expert review, however, they may not reflect the most current legal developments. Nothing herein, or in the course materials, shall be construed as professional advice as to any particular situation with respect to compliance with legal statutes or requirements.

  • identify response procedures to safely deal with a spill

Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure Plan

When petroleum products are accidentally spilled, they may damage the environment and pollute waterways. A spill of only one gallon of oil can contaminate a million gallons of water. This course will provide you with information on the prevention and countermeasures you should take should a spill occur. This training will also provide information on the components of a Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure (SPCC) Plan. The content in this course is designed to comply with the intent of the applicable regulatory requirements. Learner objectives are to identify the information found in an SPCC Plan, identify responsibilities of the SPCC coordinator, select characteristics of secondary containment or diversionary structures, identify characteristics of oil storage containers, and identify security requirements used to help prevent spills. This course was developed with subject matter support provided by EnSafe Inc., a global professional services company focusing on engineering, environment, health and safety, and information technology.
  • identify information found in an SPCC Plan
  • identify responsibilities of the SPCC coordinator
  • select characteristics of secondary containment or diversionary structures
  • identify characteristics of oil storage containers
  • identify security measures that should be used to help prevent spills

Storm Water Pollution Prevention

This course describes the nature and occurrence of storm water pollution, its environmental effects, and ways to address this important water quality problem. Rainwater that enters a surface water body, by flowing either overland or through a storm sewer system, is called storm water or storm water runoff. Storm water runoff is one of the leading causes of pollution in rivers and lakes. Identifying sources of storm water pollution and keeping them from coming in contact with runoff is the best and most economical way to protect the quality of the nation's waters. The content in this course is designed to comply with the intent of the applicable regulatory requirements. Learner objectives are to describe common storm water pollutants, identify categories covered under National Pollutant Discharge Elimination, and discuss methods of preventing storm water pollution. This course was developed with subject matter support provided by EnSafe Inc., a global professional services company focusing on engineering, environment, health and safety, and information technology.
  • identify common storm water pollutants
  • identify the conditions that can result from storm water pollution
  • identify activities that have the potential to cause storm water pollution
