You need to know what they are and how to apply them properly in order to remain in compliance with whichever code of hazmat/dangerous goods regulations you are following.
Ship Dangerous Goods Through Mexico? Check Your Labels.The Council on the Safe Transport of Hazardous Articles (COSTHA) recently shared an interpretation from the Mexican transportation authority that makes it clear that Mexico expects hazmat labels to be placed with the “vertex upwards,” i.e., as a square-on-point, or a square at a 45-degree angle, no matter the size of the package.
In Effect Now: OSHA Will Help Employers Comply with New Crystalline Silica StandardIn a memo to Regional OSHA Administrators regarding the new permissible exposure limit (PEL) standards for respirable crystalline silica, the Agency stated its plan to “assist employers who are making good-faith efforts to meet the new standard’s requirements.”

I can take what I learned in this workshop and apply it to everyday work and relate it to my activities.
Lion courses always set the bar for content, reference, and practical application. Membership and access to the experts is an added bonus.

Much better than my previous class with another company. The Lion instructor made sense, kept me awake and made me laugh!

Lion was very responsive to my initial questions and the website was user friendly.
Supply Chain Director
The online course was well thought out and organized, with good interaction between the student and the course.
Material Release Agent
My experience with Lion training, both online and in the classroom, is that they are far better organized and provide a better sequential explanation of the material.
Manager, Dangerous Goods Transportation
Attending Lion Technology classes should be mandatory for every facility that ships or stores hazmat.
The instructor was great, explaining complex topics in terms that were easily understandable and answering questions clearly and thoroughly.
The price was reasonable, the time to complete the course was manageable, and the flexibility the online training allowed made it easy to complete.
Hazmat Shipping Professional
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.
