DOT Offering Training Seminars for Hazmat Workers

The free training seminars provide an opportunity to educate hazmat employers and employees on DOT Hazardous Materials Regulations.

The U.S. Department of Transportation’s (DOT) Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) announced the schedule for its comprehensive two-day training seminars for hazmat employers and employees. These free training seminars provide an opportunity to educate hazmat employers and employees on DOT Hazardous Materials Regulations. Attendees can also discuss the latest developments and issues regarding hazardous materials transportation with representatives from PHMSA, FAA, Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Federal Railroad Administration, U.S. Coast Guard, Transportation Security Administration, and State Hazmat Enforcement.

Each seminar begins with a general session that provides an overview of DOT's Hazardous Materials Program. The remainder of the seminar consists of sessions based on participants’ level of experience and includes hazmat basics, as well as additional safety and compliance guides for more experienced hazmat workers.

Each session is offered twice to help maximize the experience. The seminars will be offered:

  • July 12-13, 2011, in Los Angeles
  • August 9-10, 2011, in Dallas

It is anticipated that more than 400 shippers, carriers, enforcement personnel, and other individuals involved with the transportation of hazardous materials will attend. Attendees are strongly encouraged to bring their 49 CFR and hazmat experiences to each of the discussions.

For more information, please see the flyer posted online. To sign up for a seminar, go to PHMSA’s website.
