The Heat’s On
Environmental Law Compliance


  • Also part of the Legal Compliance & Business Ethics Reference Library (boxed set).

    This hard-hitting dramatized program brings to life the staggering potential consequences of non-compliance with today’s powerful environmental laws.

    Training Topics:

  • Paperwork: Forms, records, reports, annual filings
  • Use and storage of hazardous substances: Permits, labeling, right-to-know documentation, safety training
  • Hazardous waste: On-site treatment, storage
  • Permitted discharges: Water, land, air
  • Accidental discharges: Reporting, inspection, clean-up
  • Off-site issues: Transport, treatment, disposal
  • Investigation, prosecution, penalties

    The story: A low-flying model plane, used as a spy in the sky, spots HAZMAT violations at GMX Corp. TV coverage alerts community groups. A neighborhood league surveys patterns of illness around the facility. Researchers collect samples of polluted soil and water. Clandestine surveillance cameras in a disguised panel van videotape haphazard cleanup operations. Then without warning, environmental police with a search-and-seize order arrive at the gate accompanied by inspectors wearing protective space suits. An aggressive prosecutor pieces together the evidence from the site and testimony by workers to reconstruct moments when wrong decisions were made when expediency overrode strict compliance when violations became accepted practice. The consequences include criminal charges, multi-million dollar fines and possible jail terms, immense cleanup costs, lost business, legal expenses, and public outrage.

    Dick Thornburgh, former Attorney General of the United States, delivers a powerful warning that in the world of environmental enforcement, the heat's on at all times.
