Your hazmat drivers need to renew their hazardous materials endorsement every three years, and ITI’s PRO-TREAD and Sentix LMS system is built to make meeting hazmat regulations as simple as possible. When you use Sentix Pro, you can schedule your driver to be assigned the training before their endorsement expires.
Hazmat endorsements aren't something to mess around with. The fines are steep. And if you've got a dedicated route with hazmat and you're down one person due to a paperwork snafu, it's a tough one to explain to your client and the boss. ITI offers the training needed, and the Sentix LMS that makes it simple to stay ahead of the expiration. With Sentix Pro, you can automatically reschedule training before their next renewal.
ITI’s Hazmat driver training courses are a premium addition to the PRO-TREAD Core library. You can purchase them for the segment of your fleet that needs them.
If your fleet also hauls tankers, ITI offers training to help keep drivers sharp. While most PRO-TREAD heavy duty courses deal with everyday issues faced on the road, the premium tanker training covers three important topics that are specific to tankers.
The U.S. Dept. of Transportation imposes fines up to $50,000 per day for civil violations in hazardous materials shipping. And those fines can climb up to $100,000 if the violation results in personal injury or property damage.
That said, most fines for hazmat involve paperwork and drivers not knowing their loads have hazardous materials. A little bit of training can go a long way, even for drivers who don’t have their hazmat endorsement.
