12 Common Missteps Resulting from Decentralized HazMat Programs


Hazardous materials transportation compliance issues can cast a wide net across an organization and impact many people and departments. It is not unusual for compliance in this area to be decentralized and not fall completely under an EH&S department’s or manager’s responsibility.

View this webinar to learn from the twelve common mistakes which often arise in decentralized environments, including:

  • Not understanding the regulatory differences between modes, e.g. air, highway, water, rail
  • Not controlling access to shipping accounts to only trained employees
  • Improperly preparing hazardous materials for self-transport or hiring of untrained couriers to move hazardous materials
  • Inadvertently creating inspection and enforcement triggers
  • Not training receivers in issues related to proper identification and emergency response
  • Not having administrative control over the hazardous materials program, e.g. security, registration, inspection preparedness, recordkeeping, and reporting
