Compliance Archives - July 2012
7/31/2012Q. I have a 55-gallon drum of a flammable chemical that I plan to ship to a customer. I know I am required to have a GHS label on the outside, as well as DOT markings and labels. I was told that the flame pictogram on the GHS label cannot be on the drum since there is already a Flammable Liquid label as required by the DOT. Is this true...

The instructor was very patient and engaging - willing to answer and help explain subject matter.
Material Control Superintendent
I tried other environmental training providers, but they were all sub-standard compared to Lion. I will not stray from Lion again!
Convenient; I can train when I want, where I want.
Hazmat Shipping Professional
I used the IT support number available and my issue was resolved within a few minutes. I don't see anything that could have made it better.
The instructor was very knowledgeable and provided pertinent information above and beyond the questions that were asked.
The training was impressive. I am not a fan of online training but this was put together very well. I would recommend Lion to others.
I was able to present my scenario to the instructor and worked thru the regulations together. In the past, I attended another training firm's classes. Now, I have no intention of leaving Lion!

Lion's training was by far the best online RCRA training I've ever taken. It was challenging and the layout was great!
Hazardous Waste Professional
The course was very well structured and covered the material in a clear, concise manner.
