  • Distance Learning: Environmental Hazards in Transportation

    Thursday, October 04, 2018 1:00 PM to Tuesday, October 09, 2018 5:00 PM EDT

    This course is designed to teach both the assessment of environmental toxicity data relating to transportation and the various ways transportation regulations worldwide address environmental hazard communication.  Many Dangerous Goods transportation experts lack expertise in Environmentally Hazardous Substance classification data analysis.  Many environmental toxicologists lack expertise in the various ways transportation regulations address environmentally hazardous substances, from multiple lists to criteria to various exceptions based on size, mode of transport, and geography.  SCHC now addresses all of those issues in one course. 

    For more information please visit the Distance Learning: Environmental Hazards in Transportation web page.
