Due to budgetary restrictions such as manpower reductions, today's safety and health professionals are taking on greater responsibilities in the environmental arena. Many of these professionals are unfamiliar with the basic requirements associated with environmental compliance. This second volume in Wiley's Basic Guide Series simplifies the environmental profession for those who are new to the field. It combines simple explanations of compliance issues with clear breakdowns of the latest environmental regulations. It also offers a history of the Environmental Protection Agency and various environmental policies in the U.S. The first part of the book clarifies fundamental concepts associated with preservation of environmental health and resources. It summarizes relationships between state plans and federal environmental compliance schemes, as well as covering environmental audits and inspection processes. The author discusses different types and phases of audits and audit reports, including proper documentation and follow-up. Part Two provides a nuts-and-bolts understanding of all important environmental laws, including the:
* Environmental Policy Act
* Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act
* Emergency Planning and Community Right to Know Act
* Clean Water Act
* Clean Air Act
* Toxic Substances Control Act
