Failing to properly prepare or label a hazmat shipment can result in serious injuries and incidents during the cycle of transportation. The US DOT requires training for all employees involved with packaging who can affect the safe transport of hazardous materials. Civil penalties for hazmat violations are now up to $79,976 per day, per incident and $186,610 per day, per incident that results in serious injury, illness, death, or property damage.
This course is designed to satisfy the U.S. DOT's "general and security awareness" and "function-specific" training mandates for those preparing hazmat shipments. After completing this course, employees will know which materials are DOT-regulated hazardous materials; how to prepare, mark, and label hazmat packages for transportation; and be able to recognize possible safety threats.
Registration includes an easy-to-download compliance notebook, along with Lion's top-notch reference materials.
