Compliance Archives - March 2017
3/30/2017To harmonize the US hazmat shipping rules with international standards, US DOT’s Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) officially published its highly anticipated hazmat rulemaking HM 215N to the Federal Register today.
3/27/2017In a January 2013 Final Rule, DOT allowed for a two-year transition period to allow shippers to deplete their stock of “old” labels and pre-printed packagings. Now, as of January 1, 2017, shippers are required to mark and label packages in line with new size requirements.
3/21/2017The shipping paper is one of the most important documents in the hazmat shipping process. Call it a bill of lading, declaration, IMO, Shipper’s Dec, manifest, or whatever you want it’s a certified written record of what is being shipped, the hazards present, how much is there, and where to go for more information.
3/21/2017If you love facts and figures, EPA’s Biennial Report summary is a terrific resource, allowing you to sort the data in a number of different ways to suit your needs or your curiosity. EPA now makes available tables of RCRA Biennial Report data collected from 2001 through the present.
3/20/2017The public comment period for this ANPRM was set to end on March 20—but has now been extended for an additional 60 days, in part due to requests from major industry stakeholders including the American Petroleum Institute. Comments on this potential crude oil rulemaking are now due before May 19, 2017.
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!
Senior Environmental Engineer
Lion's information is very thorough and accurate. Presenter was very good.
This course went above my expectations from the moment I walked in the door. The instructor led us through two days packed with useful compliance information.
These are the best classes I attend each year. I always take something away and implement improvements at my sites.
Best instructor ever! I was going to take my DOT training w/a different provider, but based on this presentation, I will also be doing my DOT training w/Lion!
Hazardous Waste Professional
I have been to other training companies, but Lion’s material is much better and easier to understand.
The instructor clearly enjoys his job and transmits that enthusiasm. He made a dry subject very interesting and fun.
Convenient; I can train when I want, where I want.
Hazmat Shipping Professional
The instructor made the class very enjoyable and catered to the needs of our group.
The workshop covered a lot of information without being too overwhelming. Lion is much better, more comprehensive than other training providers.
