I’m delighted to announce that Norton Rose Fulbright will be hosting a webinar on May 30 at noon CDT with an absolute HazMat pro, Jim Shimko of Labelmaster.
Each day, U.S. businesses transport over one million HazMat shipments, and every one of them is subject to federal standards. Chances are, your company is shipping HazMat whether you know it or not. And while your logistics and operations personnel may be well-versed in the requirements, HazMat is heavily enforced, and in-house counsel should know the basics in case a problem arises. HazMat regulations establish standards for HazMat identification, training, labeling, use of proper containers, recordkeeping, reporting, placarding, and vehicle safety. The transport of such goods is governed by a complex network of national and international regulations, programs that have extremely broad applicability across many industries.
During the webinar, we will cover the following topics:
- What is HazMat?
- How are these rules applied?
- How do you structure a management program to control the risks?
- Who can help?
