We've compiled a list of news updates related to the coronavirus pandemic that supply chain managers, environmental compliance officers, OSHA safety personnel, hazmat logistics employees and other EH&S workers need to know.
The reliefs and requirements for shipping hazardous materials/DG in limited quantities vary greatly from one mode of transportation to another. Here we break down what's required if you ship limited quantities by ground (49 CFR), air (IATA DGR), or vessel (IMDG Code).
Lion Technology's 2020 webinar schedule of hazardous materials/dangerous goods and RCRA hazardous waste training is in full swing! Join us to from wherever you are to simplify your compliance responsibilities.
US FAA and the International Air Transport Association (IATA) have both released guidance pertaining to the use of passenger aircraft to safely transport cargo and/or mail during the COVID-19 global health crisis.
Last month, the International Air Transport Association (IATA) released information to help hazmat shippers transport infectious substances and hand sanitizer safely and in compliance via air. This new guidance aims to assist supply-chain professionals, aircraft workers, and frequent flyers alike in supporting the fight against COVID-19.
At Lion, we get a lot of questions about shipping marine pollutants. Specifically, when are they regulated and are there any reliefs for them? It can get a little confusing, because the answer will differ depending on the mode of transport. Something that is not a marine pollutant for a ground shipment could very well be a marine pollutant when shipped by vessel.
A household name for shipping services was issued a $120,000 civil penalty by the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for allegedly violating hazardous materials regulations. FAA alleges that the shipping company knowingly offered a shipment containing improperly packaged lithium batteries for transportation by air on Nov. 15, 2018.
The International Air Transport Association (IATA) recently released its 2020 Lithium Battery Guidance Document for shippers who offer lithium-ion or lithium-metal batteries for air transport.
Together with the Global Shippers Forum (GSF) and other industry groups, IATA has renewed its call for governments to “crack down on manufacturers of counterfeit batteries and of mis-labeled and non-compliant shipments.”
The International Air Transport Association (IATA) has released the first Addendum to the 61st Edition IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations (DGR). The new edition of the hazardous materials/dangerous goods air regulations takes effect on January 1, 2020.

Effective training on environmental, transportation, and safety issues is critical to protect employees and defend your organization from costly fines and
liability. But not all hazardous materials or hazardous waste training sessions are created equal.
