New Hazardous Material Transportation Training Program

Press Release
Monday, November 12, 2012

Environmental Resource Center offers in-depth training on regulations for marine & air transportation of hazardous materials.

Businesses that are involved in the sea or air transportation of hazardous materials can help their workers keep up with recent changes in new regulations that will impact their shipments through four seminars and webcasts from transportation consulting firm Environmental Resource Center. Each seminar and webcast meets both initial and recurrent training requirements of the International Maritime Organization (IMO) and International Air Transport Association (IATA) regulations.

"Transportation rules are continually updated and modified," said Brian Karnofsky, company president. "Several new IATA dangerous goods regulations become effective on January 1, 2013, and Amendments to the International Maritime Dangerous Goods Code will be in use January 2013 and become mandatory in January 2014. Our training ensures that participants stay in compliance with these and other directives."
