DOT Hazmat Inspections Continue Under Shutdown
According to the Department of Transportation’s “shutdown plan,” approximately 27,000 of FAA’s 45,000 personnel remain at work, while about half of PHMSA’s 563 personnel are working through the shutdown. In addition, hazardous materials safety inspectors will be “recalled over time to maintain the safety of the system and/or respond to incidents,” according to the plan.
While PHMSA and FAA will continue to perform critical hazmat safety responsibilities—inspections, incident investigations, and approvals and permits (in emergencies)—certain DOT hazmat programs have been put on hold until the shutdown ends.
The following DOT hazmat-related activities are on hold until an agreement to appropriate funds has been reached:
- Hazardous materials engineering and research
- Hazardous materials standards and rulemakings
- Hazardous materials program development
- Hazardous materials training, outreach, and grants

Lion is at the top of the industry in compliance training. Course content and structure are updated frequently to make annual re-training enjoyable. I like that Lion has experts that I can contact for 1 year after the training.
I had a positive experience utilizing this educational program. It was very informative, convenient, and rewarding from a career perspective.
I will never go anywhere, but to Lion Technology.
