This paper includes an exploration of environmental aspects specific to the role of today's safety professional. Topics include an examination of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), management of satellite accumulation areas, and the Emergency Planning and Community Right to Know Act (EPRCRA), with a focus on chemical inventories, MSDS libraries, and the completion of Tier I and Tier II reports. We will explore Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) initiatives and the global harmonization of hazard communication, specifically the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization, and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) regulation.
