PHMSA to Host 2020 ERG Meeting
Sometimes called simply “the orange book,” the ERG is a joint effort between North American safety regulators published once every four years. This little book is a critical resource for hazardous materials shippers, transporters, and emergency responders. The ERG provides guidance and information that helps hazmat response teams, firefighters, law enforcement, and rescue squads respond to hazardous materials releases.
Specific topics to be discussed at the June 17 meeting include:
- Methodology for determining response to toxic-by-inhalation vapor incidents.
- Outcomes of field experiments and ongoing research efforts on airborne toxic gas concentrations.
- New methodologies and considerations for future editions of the ERG.
The current edition of the orange book, the 2016 ERG, is available for free online.
DOT PHMSA requested input for the 2020 ERG in May 2018.

Much better than my previous class with another company. The Lion instructor made sense, kept me awake and made me laugh!
Enterprise Safety Manager
More thorough than a class I attended last year through another company.
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 workshop covered a lot of information without being too overwhelming. Lion is much better, more comprehensive than other training providers.
I like the consistency of Lion workshops. The materials are well put together and instructors are top notch!
Permitting, Compliance & Environmental 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.
Chemical Laboratory Manager
I really enjoyed this training. Even after years on both sides of the comprehension coin, I find myself still learning! The quality of the delivery exceeded much of the training I have received in the past.
The exercises in the DOT hazardous materials management course are especially helpful in evaluating your understanding of course information.
Principal Industrial Hygienist
I think LION does an excellent job of any training they do. Materials provided are very useful to my day-to-day work activities.
The instructor created a great learning environment.
