J.J. Keller has released a new training program to help fleets reduce the financial and environmental costs associated with Hazmat incidents.

The program, Hazmat Training: What’s Required & How to Comply, covers four areas of the Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR). Those are:

  • General awareness/familiarization training
  • Function-specific training
  • Safety training
  • Security awareness training

According to the company, function-specific training is considered the most challenging to provide. This is because training must be individualized for employees based on the specific parts of the HMR that apply to their job descriptions.

“We created this training program to help trainers identify the function-specific training requirements of individual employees, and to instruct hazmat employees how to do their jobs safely and correctly,” said Randy Skoog, editor of hazmat transportation content for J. J. Keller. “This program is thorough, effective and personal.”

The program includes innovative training tools that enable the trainer to involve Hazmat employees in the training process, so their learning experience reflects the specific tasks each one performs at the company; and to personalize the program to align with company policies and procedures.

Components of Hazmat Employee Training: What’s Required & How to Comply include a closed-captioned DVD video, a comprehensive instructor manual that guides trainers through the material and helps them build in company-specific information, a trainer tools CD-ROM containing customizable training materials, and a Hazmat employee training packet containing a workbook, handbook, hazmat label chart, hazmat placard chart, hazmat marking chart, and load and segregation chart.

The training program is available for $415 by calling 800-327-6868 and referencing Promo Code 105929, or by visiting jjkeller.com/105929.
