Transporting Hazardous Materials: Best Practices For Complying With Hazardous Materials Regulations
|Date / Time:
||3/29/2017 / 2:00 - 3:00 P.M EST
Hazardous materials regulations (HMR) apply to anyone who transports or offers hazardous materials for transportation in commerce.
Transporting a hazardous material requires several important steps and precautions, including proper waste classification, description, packaging, marking, labeling, segregating, security planning, and training in order to maintain regulatory compliance.
Non-compliance with associated hazardous material transportation regulations can carry heavy fines and sometimes lead to criminal charges and steep prices for easily avoided mistakes.
In fiscal year 2016, DOT’s Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) performed over 126,000 roadside inspections of trucks, focusing on hazardous materials transportation compliance. As a result of those inspections, DOT identified over 26,000 violations. Most commonly cited were insecure packages, failure to produce a copy of the DOT hazmat registration number, and issues with placards and shipping papers.
Don’t become a target for one of these avoidable citations! Join us for an in-depth webinar presented by Meaghan Boyd, a seasoned environmental litigation partner at Alston & Bird, as she discusses best practices for hazardous materials transportation.

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
