    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.

    The Rail Workers Hazmat Training Program was awarded funding to provide training to rail workers to increase their knowledge of the transportation of radioactive materials. To meet this training need, the Rail Program will conduct three 16-hour DOE-sponsored Modular Emergency Response Radiological Transportation Training (MERRTT) courses. This training course, delivered in co-operation with the DOE-Transportation Emergency Preparedness Program, contains information that is specific to the needs of all rail road employees. You will learn the basics about radioactive materials, what they are, how they can affect you, and how to protect yourself. The program also covers transportation and packaging risks including the use of monitoring instruments to simulate package inspection requirements.

    This federal grant from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) provides transportation, lodging, and meals for training participants of this two day train-the-trainer course. Completed registration forms should be faxed, mailed or e-mailed to the Hazmat office as soon as possible, or register online.
