Managing hazardous waste in a safe, environmentally acceptable and compliant manner is an important and complex undertaking for laboratory personnel. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulates the generation and disposal of hazardous waste. Federal, state, and local laws present a multifaceted set of rules for managing hazardous waste with legal consequences. These regulations are meant to regulate hazardous waste from “cradle to grave.” In an effort to reduce regulatory requirements for wastes routinely accumulated in containers at smaller work areas such as laboratories, the EPA has established Satellite Accumulation Areas (SAAs). Histologists using SAAs must understand the regulations in order to comply with EPA requirements. This webcast will cover information on identifying and characterizing hazardous waste in the laboratory. The discussion will clarify the EPA’s definition of hazardous waste and provide the tools needed to meet EPA requirements.
