Online Hazmat Training is the Path Forward for 2021 and Beyond

Starting in 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic has and continues to pose significant challenges across virtually every industry, including hazardous materials transport. For those dealing with hazardous materials, maintaining training and compliance standards through in-person educational settings was near impossible.

As organizations continue to adapt to the ‘new normal,' forward-thinking businesses are leaning into online training and education as a way to ensure compliance without sacrificing the quality of instruction.

With new COVID-19 variants and a slower than anticipated vaccine rollout threatening to prolong the pandemic well into 2021 (and perhaps beyond), online training modalities offer a safe, reliable, convenient, and cost-effective way to meet hazmat training compliance required by law.
