(1.7.16) Sometimes it doesn’t take much of a question to get my attention:
Training required to sign shipping manifest for SQG.
My reply that same day:
If your question is if training is required for employees of an SQG who sign the hazardous waste manifest, I will try to answer that below.
- An SQG has a limited training requirement under the EPA regulations (your state may differ). An SQG must ensure that employees are thoroughly familiar with how to handle hazardous waste and how to respond in an emergency. You can read more about SQG training requirements in my article: RCRA Training for Small Quantity Generators of Hazardous Waste.
- The person who signs a shipping paper for a hazardous material or a hazardous waste manifest must receive initial and triennial training as required by the USDOT. You can read here more about HazMat Employee training.
- This article will answer your question as well: Training Necessary to Sign a Hazardous Waste Manifest.
Contact me with any questions you may have about the generation, identification, management, and disposal of hazardous waste

And that was it. Haven’t heard from him since. I’d like to hear from you though, if you have a question about the transportation of hazardous materials or the management of waste (hazardous, universal, non-hazardous, & used oil).
