Dufour Seminars & Training To Present Mandatory Hazardous Waste Training And Cal/OSHA Compliance And Inspection Management Webinars In October

Sacramento, CA /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Hazardous waste and Cal/OSHA compliance expert and defense attorney James T. Dufour will present his training firm's most important and popular webinars, which should not be missed by any business or employer in California. There are many hazardous waste and OSHA training programs, but none are specific to California laws and regulations, or as expertly presented with valuable reference material provided to each attendee.

Cal/OSHA Compliance and Inspection Management—October 20, 2016: In addition to its well-organized and strategically constructed overview of how to design and document a safety, or I2P2 Program that not only prevents injuries, but proves defenses to citations, and the inspection through appeal process, this program will cover new topics of concern:

  • Increase in base penalties for Non-Serious citations to $12,471, and $24,709 for Repeat and Willful citations. (Cal/OSHA already has a $25,000 penalty ceiling for Serious citations.)
  • Change in the definition of a Repeat violation that will affect every employer in California with multiple workplaces in the state and any history of a citation within the last 5 years.
  • Loss of 50% penalty discount for abatement of Serious violations if not virtually immediately corrected due to a new state law.

Hazardous Waste & Universal Waste Management Basic Training—October 27, 2016: This program, which has been relied on by thousands of businesses and other organizations for decades to fulfill mandatory annual hazardous waste training obligations, covers the basics of hazardous and universal waste management from point-of-generation through satellite accumulation, to on-site storage and off-site transportation. It is an effective overview for newly-assigned waste handlers, and efficient refresher and update training for experienced EH&S personnel. Dufour's unique expertise in both defense of enforcement cases, as well as advising clients on regulatory compliance and best waste management practices provides the authoritative information and Q&A support attendees need in this complicated and heavily-enforced subject.

Attendees of both Cal/OSHA and Hazardous Waste webinars will be provided with a 3-hour audio-video learning experience, as well as an electronic version of the program complete with hyperlinks to actual state laws and regulations at no additional cost. Dufour is also well-recognized for its open door customer support policy, including follow-up Q&As and other consultation services.

The cost per webinar is $299.
