PHMSA Outreach

By October 3, 2022PHMSA


Did you know that the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) provides a variety of Outreach tools to help companies comply with the Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR)? 

Their mission is to enhance regulatory compliance through the “development and dissemination of written materials that enable the public to more easily understand and comply with the Hazardous Materials Regulation (HMR) and producing outreach materials designed to help the regulated community meet HMR training requirements. The Branch also develops and publishes the Emergency Response Guidebook (ERG) and other emergency preparedness and response instructional materials.” 

The section of the PHMSA website is called Hazardous Materials Outreach & Engagement. It can be found here.  

By further clicking to the publication section you will find a variety of documents including: 

  • DOT Chart 17 
  • 7 Useful Tips Quick e-Resource Guide 
  • Registration Process 
  • Transporting Infectious Substances Safely 
  • How to use the HMR 
  • Hazmat Transportation Requirements 
  • Guide to Developing a Hazmat Training Program 
  • Labeling of Hazardous Chemicals for Bulk Shipments 
  • Plus, many more…and many are also available in BOTH English and Spanish 

Of course, these publications would never replace training, rather, they are just another tool that can be used to enhance it.  

ICC Compliance Center also provides a variety of tools to enhance learning. Our useful posters and charts provide easy reference and can help illustrate due diligence when complying with the regulations. Questions? As always, our Regulatory Experts are available to help, weekdays from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm EST.
