Posted on 11/29/2016 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 Midwest 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.

With 2017 only weeks away, shippers face changing 49 CFR hazmat regulations—including major updates finalized by PHMSA this year. Hazmat shipping mistakes are now more costly than ever: PHMSA raised its penalties for hazmat shipping violations this year from $75,000 per day, per violation to $77,114 per day, per violation.
