This week, the Environmental Daily Advisor discussed wetlands, training, and universal wastes.

Are You Exempt from Wetlands Permitting--Some activities are exempt from Section 404 wetlands permit requirements. These include normal farming, silviculture, and ranching activities. In order to fall under this exemption, the activities must be part of an established (i.e., ongoing) farming, silviculture, or ranching operation.

Are There Any Good Reasons to Improve Your Training? Here Are 6 Good Ones--Training sometimes feels like everyone's last priority at your company. One of the first challenges trainers face is a resistance to training from both employees and management. Employees are frustrated at taking time away from their jobs, and managers aren’t convinced that time spent training is time well-spent.

How to Promote Training to Upper-Management-- Lack of upper-management support and commitment to training is a big reason why training is not as effective as it’s expected to be.
