  • Through agreements with other training and educational institutions, training managers can make it possible for employees to work toward career and educational goals without having to duplicate previously acquired competencies. By considering both company goals and employee educational goals, training managers con realize some of the articulation benefits typically associated with the public school system. At the Idaho National Engineering Laboratory, several con tractor training managers have established cooperative agreements with local college administrators, agreements that allow contractors employees university credit for completing specific contractor training and professional development courses.

  • The problems and benefits of individuals managing their solid wastes at home are surveyed. The survey indicates that as the population rises people tend to burn only the combustible portions of their waste. Some communities have limited ordinances that ban the burning of raw garbage, but other municipalities allow residents to burn all of their wastestream, even though some materials are not combustible and cannot be burned. Potential environmental effects involve both the ash residue and the air emissions. While selected burning can reduce some of the environmental hazards these would probably only be marginally less than the impacts ofmore » burning it all. The study clearly indicates that the environmental problems of burn barrels are not insignificant. However, the attitudes and motivations of those who burn waste will have to be addressed by the communities that attempt or should attempt to control this problem. These include: avoidance of waste collection costs; availability of trash cartage services; and habit. Habit is probably as strong a motivation as cost avoidance and ease of collection combined. Residents have often burned trash for several generations and regard the practice as a {open_quotes}god-given right.{close_quotes}« less
  • In the Tennessee Valley, controlling lake levels for environmental concerns has always been a long-standing issue. The 1991 Lake Improvement Plan outlined a new operating policy for TVA, one that addressed environmental concerns as a high priority, of equal importance as original TVA mandates of flood control, navigation, and hydropower. In 1994, TVA`s new Chairman and the TVA board declared environmental leadership as one of three TVA corporate goals, committing the agency to managing its reservoir system for a healthier river resource.
  • In 1991, the TVA`s Lake Improvement Plan elevated certain recreation concerns to equal importance as original TVA mandates of flood control, navigation and hydropower. Providing recreational opportunities from the Tennessee Valley Authority`s water resources while balancing the reservoir system to benefit all users has become increasingly challenging.
