SHS222 :  Environmental Safety II: Environmental Auditing

SHS222 addresses the legal, regulatory and best management practices associated with building and managing a fully integrated environmental audit program. The course relies on, and enhances the student's existing environmental knowledge in Resource Conservation Recovery Act (RCRA), Clean Water Act (CWA), Clean Air Act (CAA), and Comprehensive Environmental Response Compensation Liability Act (CERCLA) as a basis for this course. How the regulations impact an audit program, either independently or collectively, are discussed throughout the course. The basic elements of compliance auditing and examples of commonly required regulatory reports, forms and record keeping based on the American Society for Testing and Materials-1527 (ASTM-1527) are introduced. Oregon's requirements are the model presented in class whenever possible.
