US DOT Requires Training for Shippers of Dry Ice

Posted on 7/6/2011 by Lion Staff

Dry ice is commonly used by the medical, pharmaceutical, and food industries to keep perishable goods frozen during shipment. The substance poses a variety of health and safety threats, including explosion and suffocation. With enforcement on the rise, thorough knowledge of the regulations is essential to avoid penalties for non-compliance that can be as high as $100,000 per day, per incident.
 
Dry ice transported by ground must be shipped in compliance with the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) Hazardous Materials Regulations; while air shipments must be in compliance with the International Air Transport Association (IATA) Dangerous Goods Regulations.
 
Lion Technology now offers a Shipping Dry Ice online course to teach industry professionals how to comply with government shipping rules and meet Federal training mandates for employees who prepare dry ice for transport. The Shipping Dry Ice Online Course is available 24/7 at Lion.com and covers the shipping rules for road, rail, and air. 
 
Lion Technology’s dry ice course covers both the DOT and IATA regulatory mandates, and registration information can be found here.
