Hazmat employers who fail to provide training or maintain test records account for more than one third of the DOT‘s enforcement actions pertaining to violations of the hazardous materials transportation regulations. Now, more than ever — with IATA, ICAO and IMDG Code regulation changes effective January 1, 1999 — is the time to review your training records. The Hazardous Materials Advisory Council (HMAC) provides initial and recurrent training on the basics of ground, air and water transportation. They also provide specialized training courses that deal with hazarous wastes, European road and rail, radioactive materials, classification and performance-oriented packaging. HMAC’s hazardous materials transportation training courses meet applicable initial and recurrent training requirements as specified by subpart H of Part 172 of the US DOT Hazardous Materials Regulations.
