Risk Management Strategies: HAZMAT Training Resources
eleases of flammable or combustible liquids and corrosive materials are involved in many HAZMAT transportation incidents. Communication while hazardous materials are in transit is vital to prevent releases and to provide details to cleanup crews in case of any accident. Shipping even a Bo Orr small amount of hazardous material may Federated require special handling – especially durInsurance ing air transport. The ability to transport hazardous materials safely can aﬀect the stability of a business. Manufacturers and distributors are reluctant to provide materials identiﬁed as hazardous unless the people shipping and receiving these materials are adequately trained according to Department of Transportation rules. Although various resources are available, gathering speciﬁc information is often time-consuming. To simplify this process, Federated has consolidated information from many sources into
one risk management tool – an informative multi-media HAZMAT Training CD-ROM. The CD includes group presentations and interactive individual modules and tests with records of training. A companion booklet outlining all of the training requirements is also provided with the CD. Contact your Federated marketing representative for more information on this valuable resource. Policyholders can order this CD directly by logging on to www.federatedinsurance.com, then choose Insurance Solutions / Risk Management Services / Request Materials / Packaged Materials. Then request the “Hazardous Materials Transportation” CD. ❍ This article is intended to provide general recommendations regarding risk prevention.
