Description:

A quick peek at the U.S. Department of Transportation’s (DOT) most frequently cited violations reveals that year after year hazmat shippers continue to have difficulty complying with both ground and air shipping regulations.

Whether you are a shipper or the supervisor of a shipper, this webinar will set you on the right path to compliance, first by identifying the applicable hazmat shipping requirements:

  • For organizations that ship hazardous materials by ground or air—routinely, periodically, or infrequently—training is mandatory under federal regulations found at 49 CFR 172.702.

  • For those who ship domestically or internationally by air using the International Air Transport Association (IATA) Dangerous Goods Regulations, training to those requirements is called out specifically in 49 CFR 172.704(a)(2)(ii).

  • For routine hazardous materials shippers, there are likely compliance programs in place that include all of the required training components. But, if your company’s hazardous materials shipping occurs on a periodic or infrequent basis, the training program for your shippers may be inadequate or even non-existent. The key to compliance with 49 CFR 172 “Subpart H – Training” is rigorous, job-focused training for at least two people.
Under these regulations, there are many requirements concerning:
  • Completion of DOT specific training;
  • Registration, identification and classification of hazardous materials
  • Packaging, marking, and labeling
    appropriate documentation including emergency response information and telephone number
  • Loading and separation/segregation
    placarding
And, one of the most critical decisions you must make at the initial stage is whether to establish a shipping program internally or contract for these services.

If the activity will be frequent and integral to the business, it may be more efficient to set up a department that performs these services. If this is not the case, then it may be a more efficient strategy to outsource.

There are a lot of “moving” parts when it comes to hazardous materials shipping compliance.

Put the brakes on your compliance concerns by attending our webinar where Linda Lawhorn, Certified Hazardous Materials Manager and a Certified Dangerous Goods Professional reveal what’s involved in shipping hazardous materials by ground or air to avoid becoming one of this year’s statistics.

  • Evaluate your role and responsibilities in the hazardous material shipping world, with in-depth discussion of pre-transportation functions, training, testing, and resources
  • Identify the key DOT hazardous material shipping terminology with which you should be familiar
  • Comply with emergency response information, including telephone number requirements
  • Evaluate applicability of the US DOT Certificate of Hazmat Registration requirements to your organization
  • Develop and implement a successful shipping process, including identification/classification, packaging, marking/labeling, documentation, and placarding
  • Appreciate the importance of documentation consistency reviews and peer reviews
  • Develop an understanding of transport vehicle basics
  • Correctly assess and apply the “materials of trade” exception
  • Interpret DOT special permits as they may apply to your hazardous materials shipments
  • Decide if you or your staff should pursue certifications and/or credentials.
About Your Presenter:

Linda Lawhorn has more than 20 years of experience in hazmat and dangerous goods shipping by highway and air, domestically and internationally, both government and commercial applications. She has observed that critical portions of the hazardous materials regulations are misunderstood and therefore not successfully executed consistently. She has made a personal commitment to helping shippers achieve compliance and be able to enjoy their work with less stress. In addition, she has noted that individuals who are not shippers themselves but supervise shippers also benefit from this information because they are better equipped to provide their shippers with the tools they need for regulatory compliance. Ms. Lawhorn works for Edgewater Technical Associates which is headquartered in Los Alamos, New Mexico, with regional offices in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, and Aiken, South Carolina, and supports a staff of 130+ senior consultants and staff augmentation personnel at DOE and NRC sites including LANL, SRS, ETTP, ORNL, TWPC, Y-12, NNSS, SPRU, WIPP, and the Hematite Decommission Site.

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.

The live 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.
