CVSA will hold two four-hour virtual training courses on Inspecting Lithium Battery Shipments on Tuesday, Aug. 2. The same course will be offered in the morning, from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. EDT time, and in the afternoon, from 2-6 p.m. EDT. Sign up for the course that best fits your schedule.
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 Thursday, July 28.
This training course was made possible by a Hazardous Materials Instructor Training grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration.
