MTAC is pleased to offer a hazardous materials training class, which will be taught by Roy Roberts, on Thursday, May 25. Roy is an occupational health and safety specialist who focuses on compliance with U.S. DOT regulations.
Federal regulation requires all hazmat employees to be trained. This class will meet the requirements of 49 CFR Part 172.704, which provides for training requirements, and 49 CFR 177.800(c), which puts responsibility on the motor carrier. “A carrier may not transport a hazardous material by motor vehicle unless each of its hazmat employees involved in that transportation is trained as required by this part and subpart H of part 172 of this subchapter.”
The following employees should attend this class: Plant & Safety Managers; Packing & Shipping Supervisors; Traffic & Transportation Managers; Warehouse & Dock Supervisors; Distribution Employees; Dispatchers & Purchasing Agents; Hazmat Drivers.
Federal regulations state that employees must be trained within 90 days after their date of hire, and that re-training occur every 3 years. Attend this class in order to maximize safety, and ensure compliance with federal regulations.
A lunch will be provided for those in attendance. Finally, attendees will receive a Certificate of Training at the conclusion of the class.
