Wednesday, April 16, 2014
Environmental Update Seminar
State College, PA.

Contingency Plan Training, 1 credit hour
Engineer PDH, 4.5 credit hours

(Certificates distributed at end of seminar)

There are a considerable number of updates affecting pavement industry production, and operations, from an environmental standpoint. PAPA always has placed emphasis on training of its members, so that changes in environmental regulations, and environmental operating practices do not impact the industry unexpectedly.

We hope that all PAPA Member companies can send at least one representative to this update environmental seminar.

A portion of the seminar will be devoted to Contingency Plan training in addition to stormwater issues. So, along with PDH credits, a certificate will be issued for Contingency Plan Update training, recommended on an ongoing basis by USEPA and DEP, for managers, foreman or other environmental management personnel, who inspect asphalt and job sites for stormwater compliance, to make sure that facilities are constructed, properly maintained and updated to avoid spills and releases to the environment.

Click here for registration form. Register quickly as there is limited seating.
