These free workshops are opportunities to learn about your facility's planning and reporting obligations under EPCRA.

Description: Congress passed the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA) in 1986 after deadly chemical accidents. EPCRA establishes requirements for federal, state and local governments, Indian tribes, and industry regarding emergency planning and "Community-Right-to-Know" reporting on hazardous and toxic chemicals The Community-Right-to-Know provisions help increase the public's knowledge and access to information on chemicals at individual facilities, their uses, and releases into the environment. States and communities, working with facilities, can use the information to improve chemical safety and protect human health and the environment. Attend this online training and learn the basics of EPCRA, and specifically how to comply with the annual March 1st EPCRA Tier 2 reporting deadline.
