Manager's Guide to Environmental Regulations

I just received my copy of Manager's Guide to Environmental Regulations by Thompson Publishing.  Environmental compliance can be burdensome, complex and costly. This book is a new and essential sourcebook that explains the requirements of the major federal environmental laws and will help you maintain compliance, meet ongoing deadlines, and avoid costly penalties and settlements.

Monetary penalties for noncompliance can be high; and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, once involved in an investigation, may look back a number of years for additional violations beyond the current situation. Thompson’s Manager’s Guide to Environmental Regulations will serve as a valuable tool in preparing your facility.

The book is divided into the following areas for easy reference – how to develop a facility-specific environmental compliance plan and explanations of the regulatory requirements under the major programs: the Emergency Planning and Community Right-To-Know (EPCRA); the Risk Management Program; Hazardous Materials and Waste; the Clean Air Act; and Clean Water Act.
