CONTENTS

D.O.T. has amended the Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR) in conformance with amendments to the Hazardous Materials Transportation Act that required DOT to regulate the training of all hazardous materials (haz-mat) employees. Training to meet the new requirements will increase a hazmat employee's safety awareness and be an essential element in reducing hazmat incidents.

TRAINING means a systematic program (i.e., consistent approach, testing, and documentation) that ensures that a hazmat employee has knowledge of hazardous materials and the HMR, and can perform assigned hazmat functions properly. See CFR49 section 172.700(b) and 172.704.

Letter from Larry Snellings to President – Senior Consultant

This letter is to confirm the officers and staff of Dangerousgoods.com, Inc. have been trained and are qualified to handle dangerous goods in accordance with current domestic and international regulations.

"C.F.R. 49 " covers the laws for packaging and shipping requirements. The Department of Transportation does require certification for employees or employers who handle hazardous materials in conjunction to and for the purpose of transportation of said materials.

To help companies meet these requirements my company has provided consulting and classes, training manuals, and instructors both in house and through universities across the USA. D.O.T requires that any employee who handles haz-mat as a part of their job in conjunction with the packaging of, the transport of, or receiving of must be trained in general awareness and job specific functions of the applicable regulations.

I have been in the transportation industry since 1978, I have been consulting and teaching classes in the transport and packaging of haz-mat since 1980. This is my 37th year as an instructor.

I have been an instructor for: The National Spill School Corpus Christi Texas, The Coastal Bend Business Round Table, I have also taught classes for: Lamar University, Houston Customs Brokers & Forwarders Assoc., New Orleans Customs Brokers & Forwarders Assoc./ Mobil Customs Brokers & Forwarders Assoc. & The University of Houston Clear Lake.

I look forward to working with you and your staff in the days ahead.

Best regards,

In-House Classes Taught At Your Facility

If you have four or more people to train, it may be less expensive for us to come to you instead of sending your staff out of the office and out of town. Dangerousgoods.com, Inc. will provide the instructor and manuals. Dangerousgoods.com, Inc. will provide testing and certification of training to each student who completes the class. Classes start at 9:00am and end at 5:00pm. Breaks are usually scheduled to accommodate class and usually are one in the morning and one in the afternoon. If your company can provide lunch this allows more time to be spent on class instead of waiting for students to come back from leaving your facility. You will need a flip chart / eraser board, a TV / VCR and a class room setting if possible. Please advise if you do not have any of these items. We will need a list of students for preparing certificates. Also your company logo for the front of the manuals.
