Life Safety eliminates the time spent on training fluff and only covers the essential training information that will be used and retained by your employees.

Specifically, this training will include:

  • Using the DOT Hazardous Materials Table;
  • Preparing and tracking shipping papers including Hazardous Waste Manifests;
  • Packaging;
  • Marking;
  • Labeling;
  • Inspecting;
  • Placarding the transport vehicle; and
  • Final walk through of your facility.

Each participant will receive a detailed course manual for each program title (DOT / IATA) and be given a quiz at the end of their training programs to document comprehension of the material. Each participant passing the quiz will be provided a certificate of training for the course they participated in.
