NES Returns to the 2024 Cal CUPA Conference

NES is honored to once again be a part of the 2024 Annual Cal CUPA Conference. This will be the 26th anniversary of the event, and the theme this year is “People, Purpose & Passion: Our Pathway to Success!”  The 2024 Cal CUPA Conference would be held at the Hyatt Regency Burlingame, 1333 Bayshore Highway, Burlingame, CA 94010, from February 26 to February 29, 2024.

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 proud to present one training program at this year’s California CUPA Conference. Our popular Basics of Hazardous Waste Training for Industry will be available for all interested parties to register for.

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.

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). See the links below to each part of our CUPA blog series, as well as a link to last year’s 2023 Cal CUPA Conference blog piece.

2024 Cal CUPA Conference Panels

In keeping with previous years, NES will be presenting hazardous waste training during this year’s conference. These training sessions will be presented in person.

Those interested in attending this year’s free training sessions can find out more by visiting the 2022 Cal CUPA Conference Free Industry Training Sessions webpage and can fill out their registration form by visiting the NES 2024 CUPA Registration Form webpage.
