Hazmat Safety Training

Blue Tuna has several hazmat safety training programs. Some are located in OSHA training and New Employee training, but most can be found in the Hazmat Safety Training category here at this page. The Hazard Communication “Right to Know” law has undergone big changes during 2012, now replaced by the course “Globally Harmonized System Training” with a focus on MSDS and SDS. We have both the old and new Hazard Communication courses. The scope of the older course is broad and captures the rule as a whole, the new course focuses more on the data sheets. 49 CFR Part 172 is included here for those who ship hazmat. Also, the Hazmat Transportation Security Awareness training is applicable to any company that requires the security component for shippers and carriers.
