HazMat Webinars: Security Awareness, Shipping Functions, & 4G Packaging Fabrication

Alexandria, VA – October 10, 2019 – AICC, The Independent Packaging Association, has opened registration for a set of three webinars: Hazardous Materials General & Security Awareness, Labeling Requirements Under the HMR, and 4G Fabrication Responsibilities to be held December 3-5, 2019.

Lonnie Jaycox CPP, CDGP will lead the webinar series. Lonnie is an independent packaging engineer, consultant, and trainer in the implementation of compliance and packaging programs for regulated materials including hazardous materials (dangerous goods).  He has over 25 years' experience designing, testing, manufacturing, selecting, and implementing packaging programs for the transportation of Hazardous Materials. Lonnie is active in industry and related organizations, including ASTM, IoPP, AHMP, IHMM, and AICC.

Some topics covered during the series include:

  • Hazard Classification System of the HMR
  •  Identification of the sections in the regulations applicable to printing
  • Specific regulatory requirements pertaining to required packaging Marks and Labels: size, style, color, background, and placement.
  • Definition of a “Different Packaging” for the purposes of the regulations as applicable to fiberboard boxes. Particularly focused on the requirements for manufacturing a 4G packaging from a previously manufactured packaging identified in a Design Qualification Test Report.
  • Specific requirements for hazardous materials packaging [specifically fiberboard (4G) packaging] applicable to box makers and packaging manufacturers.

The US DOT defines hazardous materials employees as anyone whose job functions directly affects the transportation of hazardous materials, including employees who design, manufacture, test, mark, or otherwise represent packagings as qualified for use in the transport of hazardous materials [See: 49 CFR 171.1(a)]. All “Hazmat Employees,” as defined in the regulations, must receive specified training. [See: 49 CFR §172 Subpart H] within 90 days of starting employment and generally every three years thereafter [See: 49 CFR 172.704].
