The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requires all collision repair facilities comply with NESHAP 6H Final Rule, meaning any technician that applies atomized coatings must be trained on hazardous airborne pollutant reduction. The EPA required that facilities comply by January, 2011. For facilities that missed this deadline, it is still required and not too late to meet compliance requirements.
I-CAR says it’s offering an online training option that enables individuals to meet compliance requirements for the NESHAP 6H Final Rule. I-CAR’s Hazardous Airborne Pollutant Reduction (HAP01) online course will help refinish technicians or managers understand the steps required for hands-on self certification and grasp the importance of the EPA NESHAP 6H Final Rule.
Jason Bartanen, I-CAR technical director, said, “Although the compliance date has passed, collision repair facilities are still required to comply. Through not complying, there is a risk of violating the Clean Air Act. Knowing how to properly reduce hazardous material usage will benefit those working in the inter-industry, both economically and environmentally.”
Bartanen further added, “I-CAR’s online training option will enhance an individual’s understanding of how to protect the environment while minimizing material usage, as well as meet compliance standards with cost-effective training.”
I-CAR’s Hazardous Airborne Pollutant Reduction (HAP01) online course is $40 and can be completed 24/7, from an individual’s home or office.
I-CAR’s Hazardous Airborne Pollutant Reduction (HAP01) online course will help students:
Comply with EPA regulations.
Understand how to improve transfer efficiency.
Identify ways to reduce the amount of hazardous liquid and solid waste that is generated during the refinishing and equipment cleaning processes.
Provide a method for a trainer, supervisor, or manager to implement an in-house training program that is in compliance with EPA regulations.
Explain how to extend the longevity of spray booth filters through more efficient processes.
