RFA, TRANSCAER to Host Four Ethanol Safety Webinars Next Year

December 20, 2018

           

The Renewable Fuels Association, in partnership with TRANSCAER®, will host four ethanol safety webinars in 2019, beginning next month.

The first webinar will be held on Jan. 15, followed by March 19, July 2, and Aug. 13.

The “Train the Trainer” webinars are funded through a Federal Railroad Administration/TRANSCAER® grant. A single webinar can train a group of individuals, who can then turn around and pass that information forward, equipping entire communities with the knowledge necessary to respond to any potential ethanol-related emergency.

These webinar courses are intended to develop instructors to lead operations-level training. The webinars, led by national hazardous materials trainer Joel Hendelman, are open to all professional individuals above the technical level of training who are interested in learning how to teach ethanol emergency response. These professional individuals must also have an awareness level of hazardous material storage, handing and emergency response. The webinar courses are intended to develop instructors to lead operations-level training.

All webinars are from 11am CT-1pm CT. They are free to attend, but are limited to the first 100 attendees per webinar. Certificates of attendance will be awarded following the completion of the safety seminar.
