Shipping Batteries, Paints, or Other Hazmats? Lion Technology Teaches Rules for Shipping Hazmats by Ground, Air, or Ocean

| From
IMDG Dangerous Goods Regulations

LAS VEGAS, Nev., Aug. 17 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Department of Transportation (DOT) have stepped up enforcement to reduce undeclared and illegal hazmat shipments via airline, truck, rail, and ship. Undeclared shipments of hazardous materials are predominately aerosols and flammable liquids (e.g., paint and paint-related materials), as well as batteries, fireworks, dry ice, perfume products, and cigarette lighters.

Before a hazardous material is transported in commerce, it must be properly classified, described, packaged, marked, and labeled as prescribed by the DOT Hazardous Materials Regulations (49 CFR). The DOT also mandates that all hazmat employees who "directly affect the safety of hazardous materials transportation" be trained and tested on these same regulations. Hazmat employees must have additional training on the IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations and IMDG Code if shipping by air or ocean.

To help the regulated community understand the rules for multimodal hazmat shipping, Lion Technology, the nation's leader in regulatory compliance training, is presenting a how-to training series on the DOT, IATA, and IMDG regulations. Training on all three shipping modes will be held in San Diego, CA on September 27-30; Seattle, WA on September 28-October 1; and San Francisco, CA on October 4-7. Training on the DOT and IATA rules will be held in Denver, CO on October 13-15. Training on the DOT rules (ground only) will be held in Phoenix, AZ on October 18-19 and Las Vegas, NV on October 21-22, 2010.

The fee for the two-day DOT workshop is $695 per person. Each additional day (IATA or IMDG) is $495 per person. Group pricing is available. Registration includes course reference materials, networking luncheon, certificate of achievement, and one year of follow-up support. Registration starts at 7:30 a.m., and the workshop runs from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Pre-registration is highly recommended. To register, call (888) 546-6511 or visit us online at .

The workshops feature in-depth discussions of the DOT Hazardous Materials Regulations (49 CFR) and the IATA and IMDG Dangerous Goods Regulations, with an emphasis on the differences between the regulations and the critical components of hazmat shipping, including classification, shipping papers, package selection, package marking and labeling, and record keeping.
