Currie Associates’ Commitment to You. We at Currie Associates would like to extend our best wishes and thoughts to our clients, their families and the entire hazmat community during this difficult time. Responses to the COVID-19 outbreak are constantly changing and that has an obvious impact to all our operations as well as employees’ and their families’ lives. We are all in this together, and we want you to know that Currie Associates is here for you. Currie Associates Inc. has been designated as an essential business  and we are well equipped with necessary resources to follow CDC guidelines of social distancing, respond to daily changes, and continue to operate our business to support your needs without interruption.

Where onsite training may not be practical, we remain prepared to provide training via webinar or through our library of online e-Learning courses.

If you are experiencing staffing shortages with your regulatory compliance or EHS employees during this time, we are here and available to support your needs. We can help with your DG transportation related questions, classification and product review, SDS review, and more.
