CVSA will hold a four-hour virtual training course on Lithium Battery Inspections on Wednesday, Feb. 8, from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. EST.
The use of lithium batteries continues to increase, which means more lithium batteries are being transported in commerce, including initial-use lithium batteries and used batteries for recycling. This course will introduce the roadside inspector to the types of lithium batteries and common uses; lithium battery chemistry and safety; lithium battery classification in §173.185, including exceptions; shipping papers, when required; marking; labeling; placarding; emergency response; incident investigation; and undeclared lithium battery shipments.
The deadline for registration is Wednesday, Feb. 1.
This training course was made possible by a Community Safety Grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration.
This class will be offered every quarter through September 2023. Watch the CVSA training website for additional class dates.
