The Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration invites you to participate in a free one-day workshop that will provide you with a basic understanding of how to use the Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR) and an overview of the many requirements for safely shipping and transporting hazardous materials.
The Hazardous Materials Regulations (49 CFR Parts 171-180) specify requirements for the safe and secure transportation of hazardous materials in commerce by rail car, aircraft, water vessel, and motor vehicle. These comprehensive regulations govern transportation-related activities by offerors (shippers, brokers, forwarding agents, freight forwarders and warehousers), carriers (common, contract and private), packaging manufacturers, re-conditioners, testers and re-testers, and independent inspection agencies. The HMR apply to any person who performs, or causes to be performed, functions related to the transportation of hazardous materials such as: determination of and compliance with basic conditions for offering, filling packages, marking and labeling packages, preparing shipping papers, and handling, loading, securing and segregating packages within a transport vehicle, freight container or cargo hold.
This one-day workshop is hosted by subject matter experts from the Hazardous Materials Safety Assistance Team under the U.S. Department of Transportation. Each workshop will include discussion topics on training requirements for hazmat employers and employees, security awareness requirements, packaging and labeling standards, placarding standards, proper shipping paper descriptions, and emergency response information. Anyone who is interested in learning more about hazmat transportation safety and the HMR is welcome to attend.
Register online or call 909-937-7228 for more information.

You are invited to attend a free, educational webinar on how to best use PSP to identify driver safety trends that help you hire great drivers.
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) launched PSP in 2010 to help motor carriers make more informed hiring decisions. Since its launch, more than 100,000 motor carriers have joined the program and have found the benefits of using PSP. PSP usage has been proven to increase safety on our nation’s roadways, and more motor carriers add this tool to their hiring processes every day.
The webinar will provide these key takeaways:
• How PSP helps motor carriers evaluate driver applicants
• Getting the best value from the PSP report
• Getting a robust view of the driver through accessing information in the PSP and state motor vehicle records
• Important safety benefits of using PSP
• PSP system overview and helpful tips
