February 17 CONN-OSHA Holds Session on Multi-Media Compliance Environmental Requirements
Leopold Kokoszka of Environmental Compliance Technologies is the guest speaker

For immediate release
February 13, 2009

WETHERSFIELD - Knowing the proper methods of using various multi-media (water, waste, etc.) and disposal of waste by-products is of major public concern and employers need to know how to follow environmental regulations to maintain a safe and clean environment which can result in long-term savings, both in terms of time and money. 

Leopold Kokoszka, President of Environmental Compliance Technologies Inc., an expert in the subject of “multi-media environmental compliance” – as the subject is officially called – will address the topic and give an overview, including a summary discussion of some of the newest regulatory requirements, during a Feb. 17 Breakfast Roundtable Discussion meeting sponsored by the Connecticut Department of Labor’s Division of Occupational Safety and Health (CONN-OSHA.)  Taking place in the Labor Department’s Annex Building, located at 31 Wolcott Hill Road, Wethersfield, the event will run from 8:15 to 9:45 a.m. 

Holding degrees in environmental engineering, environmental pollution control and chemical engineering, as well as having authored several books on the topic, Kokoszka is well-qualified to speak on the subject, notes John Able, CONN-OSHA Training Officer, who coordinates the breakfast series. 

“Whether they realize it or not, every employer in this state, be they are engaged in an agricultural-type business such as farming, corporate/office-type work, or something else such as water treatment processing and disposal, has to deal with regulations concerning multi-media environmental compliance,” Able explains “Everything falls under this topic -- from the disposal of an office’s white paper to the clean-up of excess paint from a garage’s auto body spray booth, to smoke stack discharge from a company’s facility. So, I think you’ll find our Feb. 17 breakfast quite enlightening.”

Time permitting, each person taking part will be asked to submit a question for discussion and everyone in the room will be invited to share their opinion regarding the issue.  

Admission to the roundtable is free, but pre-registration is required. To register for the breakfast roundtable or for additional information, please contact Able at (860) 263-6902, or via email at
