Description: The Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA), through the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), solicit competitive applications from eligible nonprofit organizations for Hazardous Materials Instructor Training (HMIT) grant funds. For award consideration, nonprofit organizations must demonstrate expertise in conducting training programs for hazmat employees, and the ability to reach and involve in a training program a target population of hazmat employees. Properly planned and maintained training programs are essential for hazmat employees to ensure: (1) Hazmat employees receive initial and continuing training on the risks involved in transporting hazardous materials; (2) the relevant training requirements in the Hazardous Materials Regulation (HMR) are met; and (3) hazmat employees will be equipped to ensure their safety and the safety of others. Effective training of employees can reduce risk and the likelihood of hazmat incidents and accidents, and is key to ensuring that hazardous materials are transported safely.
