2/4/2019For those of us who experience the joys of shipping lithium batteries, you have probably come to the realization that the regulators like to change the rules regarding them and do that on a frequent basis. Just when you finally get your operations in order, they change what is required.
9/19/2017When a package of hazardous materials becomes damaged during transportation, starts leaking, exhibits a defect, or otherwise ceases to conform to relevant standards, the entire package is placed inside a salvage packaging. That way, the packaging can be safely transported to an appropriate facility for recovery or disposal.
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.
2/26/2016This year, PHMSA has responded to a number of requests-for-interpretation from industry professionals seeking clarity on specific parts of the Hazardous Materials Regulations at 49 CFR 171–181. These interpretations are a great representation of the way hazardous materials regulations intersect with the realities of managing and shipping hazmat in the real world.
7/21/2015On August 6, 2014, PHMSA updated the lithium battery shipping provisions of the Hazardous Material Regulations (HMR; 49 CFR 171-180). The new lithium battery shipping rules more completely harmonize the US regulations with evolving international standards. While some dicrepancies remain, domestic and international rules for shipping lithium batteries are now more similar than ever...

2/26/2015Before OSHA adopted GHS standards, employers could label hazardous chemicals as they saw fit—provided that employees were trained to recognize and understand the labels. Under GHS HazCom rules, a standardized label is required for all workplace containers of hazardous chemicals.
At a recent Lion Technology GHS webinar, attendees raised a big concern: How can companies fit all the newly required GHS hazard information on a container too small for a traditional label?
Generators large and small commonly start their accumulation of hazardous waste at the point of generation under the satellite option at 40 CFR 262.34(c), moving the container to their central storage (i.e., 90-day or 180-day) area once it's full. In these instances, the container becomes subject to different communication requirements...

The instructor does a great job at presenting material in an approachable way. I have been able to save my company about $30,000 in the last year with what I have learned from Lion!
Lion is my preferred trainer for hazmat and DOT.
Excellent course. Very interactive. Explanations are great whether you get the questions wrong or right.
Environmental, Health & Safety Regional Manager
Well designed and thorough program. Excellent summary of requirements with references. Inclusion of regulations in hard copy form, as well as full electronic with state pertinent regulations included is a great bonus!
The instructor was great, explaining complex topics in terms that were easily understandable and answering questions clearly and thoroughly.
Lion does a great job summarizing and communicating complicated EH&S-related regulations.
