PHMSA will offer free, two-day seminars to educate hazmat employers and employees on the DOT Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR). Each seminar begins with a general session that provides an overview of the 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. Compliance with the HMR is essential for all employers and employees where dangerous goods are present, or if the business interacts with a hazardous materials shipment. The sessions will be held in Los Angeles (July 12/13) and Dallas (August 9/10). Further details can be found here.
