Jane Showalter Thomas, PE, CPEA
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, some state environmental regulatory agencies, and other organizations have established Internet-accessible databases that make environmental information about companies and individual facilities and environmental conditions of communities readily available to the general public. This two-hour course will show you how to access information from some of these data sources, describe what information they present, and describe how to submit requests for corrections.
To get the most out of this class, attendees should have Internet access as they review the material. Visiting the websites discussed is important to gaining a full understanding. Besides providing useful information, this course is set-up in a hands-on manner. You will be asked to gather information about a facility of your choice from some of these databases. If you apply this to your facility, then you will have more insight into what information the press, non-governmental organizations, and your neighbors can easily access.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
