NES Returns to the 2020 Cal CUPA Conference

NES is honored to again be a part of the 2020 Annual Cal CUPA Conference in Burlingame. This will be the 22nd anniversary of the event, and the theme this year will be “Perfecting Our Vision.”

The conference will be held at the Hyatt Regency San Francisco Airport from February 3 – 6, 2020. The Hyatt Regency, San Francisco Airport, will be serving as the main hotel for the event, and those interested in attending are encouraged to book through the event’s hotel registration link. There have been three additional hotels set as overflow options: Crowne Plaza Hotel, Doubletree by Hilton, and Hyatt Grand. Additional venue information can be found here.

Last year’s California CUPA Conference saw over 2,800 attendees, and 2020 will likely see a similar turnout. As a nationally recognized environmental, health & safety leader, NES continues to cultivate a productive relationship with the California CUPA Forum and has been invited to deliver presentations and convey valuable, insightful industry experience at the annual California CUPA Conference for over a decade. NES is pleased to contribute once again in 2020.

NES & CUPA Services: An Enduring Relationship

NES has been invited to deliver training programs and sit as panelists at the annual Cal CUPA Conference each year for over a decade. This extended relationship stems from NES’ long history of providing high-quality environmental, health & safety training on behalf of California CUPAs. Some of our popular CUPA training programs include:

  • SPCC Plans for APSA Sites
  • Universal Waste Management
  • Hazardous Materials Business Plans / CERS
  • DOT & Hazardous Waste Manifest
  • Basic Hazardous Waste Management
  • Advanced Hazardous Waste Management

We are contracted with select CUPAs throughout California to deliver training services to regulated businesses within their respective jurisdictions, and state (DTSC) and local (CUPA) inspectors routinely attend our open enrollment OSHA and hazardous waste management training programs at our Folsom, CA and San Leandro, CA training centers.

To further assist regulatory personnel, and in light of the recent emergence of the legal cannabis industry in California, NES has developed a Cannabis Industry for Regulators training program. The course provides valuable insight into the hazards inherent to cannabis operations, the protocols for performing inspections, and the continually evolving industry practices and regulations that can be confusing and difficult to keep up with.

 

Cannabis Industry for Regulators is a valuable two-day training program intended for regulatory personnel who may be visiting cannabis businesses in California for the purpose of performing site audits.

 

Additionally, NES has crafted a series of informational pieces that detail the Unified Program – an ensemble of the six environmental programs that are overseen by CalEPA and implemented through Certified Unified Program Agencies (CUPAs).

 

NES CUPA Blog Series

Our seven-part series serves as an accessible – but comprehensive – account of the six programs that comprise the Unified Program: an introductory article presents an overview of CUPA involvement in enforcing the programs, and one article is dedicated to each of the six programs. See the links below to each part of our CUPA series as well as a link to last year’s 2019 Cal CUPA Conference blog piece.
