Please join us on Thursday, April 7th, 12:00 – 1:00pm (Mountain Time) for our next free (virtual) brownbag presentation hosted by the A&WMA Idaho Chapter.

Michael Wirtz, Environmental Engineer with Jacobs, will speak on “Regulated Building Materials in Industry”

Michael will present a summary of the identification and safe handling of regulated building materials common in industry and the rules that apply.  The common regulated building materials include asbestos, lead containing paint, universal wastes, polychlorinated biphenyl containing devices, and more.  How are these materials identified?  What are the requirements for safe handling, transportation, and disposal?  And what type of notifications are required (typically)?  This conversation will focus on federal rules as they apply to the State of Idaho.

For the first 20 RSVP’s FREE lunch will be delivered directly to you prior to the start of the meeting.  The following RSVP information is required;
