Here's the Environmental Daily Advisor week in review.

Struggling with Asbestos Training? Try an O & M Program--Thousands of commercial structures in the United States still contain asbestos in many forms that can present a range of compliance problems for operations and maintenance personnel.

Defining O&M Training for Asbestos--Commercial buildings that contain any of the many forms of asbestos-containing materials (ACM) used in construction pose challenges to owners and managers. This article reviews training requirements for applicable O&M workers.

$2.5 M Penalty Assessed for TSCA Violation--The recent court decision penalizing one of the largest chromium manufacturers in the world $2,571,800, for Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) violations, is a very serious reminder to chemical manufacturers, processors and distributers to comply with TSCA disclosure requirements.
