Mandatory Now: New Lithium Battery Marks and Labels for 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.
What's So Special About Hazmat Salvage Packaging?When 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.
Waiting for 215N: Which Hazmat Label Specs To Use?In 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.
PHMSA Issues Two Hazmat Container InterpretationsThis 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.
New Lithium Battery Shipping Rules Mandatory August 7On 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.

GHS Deadline Is Less Than 30 Days AwayIn 2012, the United States Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) promulgated final amendments to the Hazard Communication Standard (HCS), to harmonize it with the United Nations Globally Harmonized System of Classification & Labeling of Chemicals (GHS)...
Small Containers a GHS Challenge for Chemical IndustryBefore 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?
Pre-Transport Requirements for Hazardous Waste
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...

I can't say enough how pleased I was with this course! Everything finally makes sense.
Very witty instructor, made the long times sitting bearable. One of the few training courses I can say I actually enjoyed.
Senior EHS Engineer
I have over 26 years of environmental compliance experience, and it has been some time since I have attended an environmental regulations workshop. I attended this course as preparation for EHS Audits for my six plants, and it was exactly what I was looking for.

Permitting, Compliance & Environmental Manager
These are the best classes I attend each year. I always take something away and implement improvements at my sites.
Lion is easily and consistently the best option for compliance training. I've learned new information from every instructor I've had.
Excellent job. Made what is very dry material interesting. Thoroughly explained all topics in easy-to-understand terms.
My experience with Lion training, both online and in the classroom, is that they are far better organized and provide a better sequential explanation of the material.
Manager, Dangerous Goods Transportation
Excellent class, super instructor, very easy to follow. No rushing through material. Would like to take his class again.
