More than four decades ago, the American public began demanding a higher standard of environmental accountability from industry. In response, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) was established with a single unyielding mission: to protect human health and the environment.
EPA regulations touch on almost every aspect of industry, from air emissions, to drinking water and stormwater control, to chemical and waste storage, shipping, and cleanup. What’s more, these increasingly complex regulations often overlap with workplace safety, transportation, and other federal and state laws, which can complicate compliance.
Whether you’re a company owner, a plant manager, or a safety supervisor, you need to stay current with EPA’s rules and regulations and how they affect your operations — or risk suffering costly consequences. In 2018 alone, the agency assessed $88 million in criminal fines, restitution, and court-ordered cleanup projects.
