Posted on 7/19/2016 by Roger Marks

To help shippers protect personnel and maintain full compliance with the latest hazmat transportation regulations, Lion will present the Complete Multimodal Hazmat Shipper Certification Workshops in southeast US cities starting next week. US DOT requires all hazmat employees to complete training within 90 days of hire, and repeat hazmat training once every 3 years.

As 2017 approaches, shippers face changing 49 CFR hazmat regulations—including major updates finalized by PHMSA last month. In addition, PHMSA has now raised its penalties for hazmat shipping violations, from $75,000 per day, per violation to $77,114 per day, per violation.

Failure to provide hazmat training for employee is now punishable by a $463 fine per employee, per day.

I tried other environmental training providers, but they were all sub-standard compared to Lion. I will not stray from Lion again!

Lion's online training is more comprehensive, has better slides, and is a superior training experience than what I would get from other trainers.

Robert Brenner

This was the 1st instructor that has made the topic actually enjoyable and easy to follow and understand. Far better than the "other" training providers our company has attended!

The instructor was probably the best I ever had! He made the class enjoyable, was humorous at times, and very knowledgeable.

Very witty instructor, made the long times sitting bearable. One of the few training courses I can say I actually enjoyed.

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.

Danny Province

EHS Professional

I like Lion's workshops the best because they really dig into the information you need to have when you leave the workshop.

Tom Bush, Jr.

EHS Manager

Given the choice, I would do all coursework this way. In-person courses go very fast without the opportunity to pause or repeat anything.
