If you are in a related or affected service that falls under the ambit of the US Department of Transport or the Code of Federal Regulations, you will, at some stage or another, be subjected to a regulatory inspection. One title under the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) suggests that first-time and, thereafter, ongoing safety and security training at least every three years is required for any or all staff or workers that are involved in the design, repair, manufacture, preparation, testing, reconditioning of ships and/or related hazardous materials.
Hazmat training is one of those safety and security programs that each and every participant can expect to undergo throughout the duration of his or her career. The US Department of Transportation has stiff civil and criminal fines lined up for those operators or business owners who do not comply with these training requirements. Such contravention, sure enough, will be gathered from the resultant regulatory inspection, where required.
The Hazmat employee training manual includes the following training workshops. A general awareness campaign may be utilized for first time participants. Specialized training will be led by industry sector specialists that are themed as function-specific. Safety training is always mandated, if not, recommended. These days, however, it has become imperative that organizations avail their staff for security awareness training.
Depending on the strategic alignment of the business and its significance in terms of National Security, relevant and/or responsible staff members will be subjected to in-depth security training. The onus remains on the business owner, team leader and/or manager to initiate the training workshop. There is no need to wait for the authorities to act. Volunteer time and resources and you will be making a worthy contribution on a national level.
As they say; do your duty, ordering your first training workshop online.
