March 19, 2016 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
March 19, 2016 - Clinton, PA Transportation Compliance Associates, Inc. (TCA), a regulatory compliance firm for the handling of hazardous materials, is providing information to help you meet your HazMat training requirements. If you are in the business of transporting hazardous materials or dangerous goods via ground, waterways or the air, it is absolutely necessary to understand the type of training you need, whether it pertains to a federal agency mandate or trade association requirement.

Who Needs HazMat Training? Avoiding training your employees not only poses an internal safety hazard, but will violate laws and regulations laid out by the Department of Transportation. HazMat training may be required for any employee in your organization who has any involvement in the handling of hazardous materials and dangerous goods. Employees who have previously completed such training may also be required to submit to periodic recertification in order to meet current regulatory standards. As you may be aware, up-to-date records are required to be maintained regarding the delivery of dangerous material training, which are subject to compliance audits.

Types of Required HazMat Training There are three specific categories of training you may be required to undergo based on the type of materials you transport. Most all hazardous material handlers will be required to complete Department of Transportation (DOT) training under Title 49 of the Code of Federal Regulations. Air transport companies complete the International Air Transport Association (IATA) Dangerous Goods Regulations (DGR) training, while shippers using waterways will complete the International Maritime Dangerous Goods (IMDG) Code HazMat training certification.

Any employee may also be subject to agency specific training as required from time-to-time, such as the 29 module Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) training required by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
