Our staff recently received DOT Haz Mat training which complies with 49CFR, HM126F, & HM232. The training encompasses Hazardous Material/Waste shipping papers, placarding, labeling, security procedures, emergency response, and highway transportation procedures. This training is required every 3 years. For our drivers, we chose to provide a top-notch training platform by bringing in an industry expert, Bill Smyser, to provide training in an environment conducive to the learning style our staff prefers and requires for optimal information retention. (Some companies do online or computer based training, which is also a good option due to price, however it is less personal and engaging. Additionally, you don’t get interaction with coworkers and industry experts like the instructor when computer based training is utilized).
In addition to our drivers receiving training, our resident in-house manifest & label printing employee, our resident in-house EH&S manager, and other key management personnel attended training. Continued training- safety, compliance and personal development, is an ongoing investment HTS puts into their employees.
