That Drives Results.
Based the data from years of completed Safety Culture Assessments, the Short Line Safety Institute (SLSI) identified a need for hazardous materials training specifically designed for short line, small business railroads. The Hazardous Materials Instructor Training Program ensures employees are conversant and compliant with the regulations regarding the transportation of hazardous materials, provide function specific training, and reviews emergency response procedures.
With a grant from the Pipeline and Hazardous Material Safety Administration, the SLSI has developed a comprehensive Hazardous Materials Instructor Training Program with the assistance of a robust team of industry experts. Together, the program management and implementation team members have over 500 years of experience in hazardous materials transportation safety.
The short line railroads will benefit tremendously by taking advantage of the expertise and one-of-a-kind industry resources the PHMSA grant has enabled. This is a unique opportunity for small railroads to supplement their training and programs for safely transporting the nation’s hazardous materials.
