ObjectiveThis presentation will provide audience member with a number of practical tools to identify and eliminate stress from their lives.
DescriptionThere are different types of stressors working for and against us. "Stress Management" introduces stress in surprising ways to the audience and defines source stresses. Then, using sound psychological concepts, it provides the audience with a model to gauge one's own current life stress level. After that, the audience learns what happens to the body during acute and chronic stress events. After providing an in-depth look at the physiological results of stress, seven proven methods of controlling and reducing stress; both acute and chronic are shared. Also, a psychological model of how stress affects our cognitive processes and behavior is demonstrated. "Stress Management" provides knowledge, and like all other CBL Training and Consulting classes, provides practical tools to overcome the problem. John Wilson provides personal insight into his own battles with professional and personal stress related to 30 years of experience in the military and law enforcement.

ObjectiveAttendees will understand the principles in waste ID and gain a repeatable process to identify if a waste is hazardous or non-hazardous.
DescriptionTo determine if a material is a hazardous waste, its important to have a structured and consistent approach because being incorrect can have a significant ripple effect. We recommend asking these four questions in this order: 1. Is it solid waste? 2. Is it exempt? (not covered in this presentation) 3. Is it listed? 4. Is it characteristic? Presentation provides context and a detailed case study to better understand the waste identification process. It will offer practical insights and suggestions on how to comply.

ObjectiveThe Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) is amending Californias hazardous waste program in California Code of Regulations (CCR), title 22, division 4.5 to adopt U.S. EPA's Hazardous Waste Generator Improvements Rule (GIR) requirements. The GIR provides additional environmental protections, regulatory structural changes, and greater flexibility for hazardous waste generators to comply with requirements. DTSC is adopting the GIR requirements in two rulemaking phases (Phase 1 and 2). This session will cover the Phase 1 rulemaking that includes GIR requirements that are more stringent than Californias hazardous waste program (mandatory requirements) and regulatory structural changes. Additionally, the session will cover the Phase 2 rulemaking that includes other GIR provisions that are either less stringent or equivalent Californias hazardous waste program that DTSC is considering for adoption.
