Environmental Compliance and Pollution Prevention Training Manual for Campus-Based Organizations--Operational and Facility Maintenance Personnel.
New York State Dept. of Environmental Conservation, Albany.; New York Univ., NY.
This manual was designed to be used as part of the Workshop on Environmental Compliance and Pollution Prevention for campus-based facilities. It contains basic information on New York state and federal laws, rules, and regulations for protecting the environment. The information presented is a summary with emphasis on those items believed to be important in the type of work done on a daily basis. The objectives of this guide and the associated workshop are: (1) to instill the principles of pollution prevention into daily staff practices; (2) to foster recycling and reuse of spent and used materials; (3) to reduce waste disposal to the extent possible; (4) to raise the awareness of the impact of individual daily actions on the environment; and (5) to review the requirements of specific New York state and federal regulations that interface with many daily work practices. The seminar and this manual will assist in reducing individual workplace impact on the environment and to stay within the bounds of the law and avoid fines and criticism. (EV)
