PHMSA requires all employees involved in the shipping, transportation, or handling of hazardous materials to receive specific training within 90 days of employment in a Hazmat job; as well as refresher training every three years. With training-related infractions exceeding $450 per violation, per day, this class can be crucial to your business.
