ETC’s Response to COVID-19

Did you know that more than 800,000 hazmat shipments occur in the United States every day? This adds up to 4 billion tons of hazardous materials transported by highway, rail, air and vessel every year in the United States alone. That’s a staggering figure! To transport these hazmat shipments through our communities safely, we depend on the knowledge and competencies of everyone involved in the shipping process from start to finish.

  • Who Needs DOT / HazMat Training?

    Hazardous Materials Regulations require initial and recurrent training of any employee whose responsibilities directly affect hazardous materials transportation safety. Hazmat employers are required to train each Hazmat employee that in any way performs functions that are regulated by the DOT HMR. There are no exceptions for small companies or self-employed individuals. Even if you ship a small quantity of hazardous materials one time, training is required.

  • Who Needs IATA Training?

    If you ship hazmat by air, your carrier may require that your packages meet international standards, even if your shipment is not destined for another country. Most major air carriers require compliance with the International Aviation Transport Association Dangerous Goods Regulations (IATA DGR).

Training Needs Assessments

A training needs assessment is often done in conjunction with a site assessment. After reviewing the company’s safety program, a determination of worker training requirements is made. The required training for a position is then compared to those currently performing those tasks.


3rd Party Compliance Audits

Third party auditing brings fresh eyes and an objective perspective to the auditing process. A DOT Compliance Audit allows a safety professional to review your DQ files to verify that you’re complying with all DOT regulations. It’s to your advantage to find out if you are fully in compliance before a Federal or State Safety Investigator shows up on your doorstep.
