34 | November - December 2022 | www . Environmental Training: How to Get Your Team Onboard Most of the facilities we enter as consultants have pretty strict envi- ronmental standards that the facility must uphold. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) does NOT play around when it comes to industrial plants. Generally, most of these plants are on the edge of towns, though some are in a rural setting. Power generation facilities, for example, are usually located near a river or lake and must abide by very strict rules and regulations set by the EPA. Every facility has to dispose of its manufacturing byproduct, debris, disposables and waste properly or risk being shut down. Proper, thorough environmental training is a large part of ensuring that these rules and regu- lations are met. Scheduling Training in these facilities, no matter the industry, is usually death-by-PowerPoint style training. Pulling the techs out of the field when they have a thousand things going on and making them sit through a two-hour PowerPoint presentation and then pulling one of them out every five minutes to "fight a fire" is probably the worst way to do training. I understand that time is nearly impossible to carve out in today's industry.
