PHE would like to congratulate Paul DiPaolo for winning the 2018 "Gaslamp Award for Outstanding Leadership and Accomplishment in support of the SAME Mission by a Young Member" for the San Diego Chapter of SAME! We are incredibly proud of Paul’s efforts and contributions this year.
Navigating compliance with complex environmental regulations is an ongoing and challenging process that facility operators must plan for and manage daily. Nonetheless, violations do occur, and are growing more expensive. In 2018, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency again raised the cost for violations for several of its programs, after also raising penalties in 2017. For example, Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) hazardous waste violations were increased to $72,718 per day, per violation. Keeping apprised of current trends in environmental compliance is one approach to help prioritize the management of your own environmental liabilities and avoid violations and fines.Read More
