DOT Bulk Rail Car Training

Department of Transportation Hazardous Materials Bulk Rail Car Training

A company that deals in rail operations that loads or unloads hazardous material needs to comply with a lot of regulations, one of which is providing training to their employees so that they are familiar with the risks associated with the product and requirements imposed by the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA). Furthermore, companies that have rail infrastructure inside or adjacent to their facilities that they operate on and/or maintain the infrastructure of those tracks, they need to be aware of their legal responsibility. Additionally, companies that operate their own track mobile or switch engine to conduct switching operations have certain responsibilities for training which can cause legal complications if they are operated improperly. TCA has the expertise to guide through the maze of regulations and ensure that your operations are in compliance and that from a regulatory compliance and legal perspective TCA will assist you to limit your liability and remain in compliance with the regulations.

Our DOT hazardous materials training is significantly important for your employees so that they understand the risks while loading or unloading the material from the tank cars and the procedures and processes for inspecting a tank car upon arrival, proper securement techniques, inspection of the tank car prior to release and the principles of the North America Non-Accident Release Program (NAR) . We design and provide special programs for this purpose. The additional option of our field exercise during an on-site training is also available for those want to provide practical “hands on” knowledge to their employees.
