RFA, Transcaer to host 4 ethanol safety webinars in 2018

By Renewable Fuels Association | January 22, 2018

The Renewable Fuels Association and Transcaer are jointly hosting four ethanol safety webinars this year for ethanol emergency response teams. These webinars will be held on Jan. 31, March 28, May 23, and July 25.

The “train the trainer” webinars, funded through a Federal Railroad Administration / Transcaer grant, are a pay-it-forward type of program. 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.

The webinar is intended to develop instructors to lead operations-level training. The webinar, led by national hazardous materials trainer Joel Hendelman, is 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 is intended to develop instructors to lead operations-level training.

All webinars will be held from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. ET. Registration is free, but is limited to the first 100 attendees per webinar. Certificates of attendance will be awarded following the completion of the safety seminar.
