The Rail Workers Hazardous Materials Training Program will conduct the following hazardous materials transportation/chemical emergency response training programs at the National Labor College George Meany Campus in Silver Spring, Maryland.
The Rail Workers Hazardous Materials Training Program prides itself on delivering the most valuable worker safety training available. Peer Instructors are members of the railroad labor community and take pride in offering the latest and most up-to-date information, teaching techniques and peer support.
The US Department of Energy (DOE) has shipped large amounts and a variety of
radioactive material by rail for years. The number of rail shipments is expected to
increase in coming years. With the increase in rail shipments comes the increased risk for
rail incidents involving radioactive material.
