CARY, N.C., Oct. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Anyone working in a job involving hazardous materials must be trained, according to DOT (49 CFR 172.704). To help companies meet this requirement, Environmental Resource Center is now offering DOT training in Spanish. The number of Spanish-speaking workers in industry is increasing at a rapid pace. In order to meet the necessary training requirements and make sure that information is understood, it is often essential to provide training in Spanish. In our Spanish-language hazardous materials courses, attendees will learn how to handle hazardous materials safely and in conformance with DOT requirements, including which materials are regulated and how to handle them properly; how to select containers, marking and labeling containers; container condition requirements; loading and unloading procedures; placarding; and how to fill out shipping papers. Students will also learn how to avoid common mistakes and what to do in the event of a transportation-related hazardous material release. Training is offered at locations across the country, and can be provided on-site as well, often for a fraction of the cost of sending employees to a course off site. Following are scheduled course dates and locations: Houston - Friday, April 3, 1998 Los Angeles - Friday, May 1, 1998 Dallas - Friday, May 8, 1998 San Diego - Friday, June 5, 1998 Phoenix - Thursday, June 18, 1998 San Antonio - Friday, September 11, 1998 Tampa - Friday, October 9, 1998 Houston - Friday, October 30, 1998 Los Angeles - Friday, November 6, 1998 The cost for each course is $399 per person.
