Hazmat Training is Essential to Your Operations
Hazmat Training (Hazardous Materials Transportationg Training) is absolutely essebtial to your operations. The US Department of Transportation (DOT), International Maritime Organization, the European Union, the International Civil Aviation Organization and other regulatory bodies require that dangerous goods employees receive porper hazmat training that will make them familiar with the safety and security risks associated with regulated hazardous materials and dangerous goods in transportation. They require that employees be trained and tested to verify that they comprehend the subject, and are able to apply it to the real situations they find in the workplace - whether they are involved in the manufacturing, shipping, or transportation part of the business.
Human error is the number one cause of hazardous materials and dangerous goods accidents. One out of every three hazardous materials/dangerous goods penalties from DOT cite a lack of training. The current legislative and regulatory environment has resulted in a 100% increase in the number of inspectors and an increase in penalty actions.
Avoid exposing your company to heavy fines and civil and/or criminal liability by developing and implementing a training program customized to meet your specific operational needs.
