Are You Responsible for Shipping Batteries by Ground or Air?
If your profession involves shipping lithium batteries or cells by ground or air, you must complete required DOT and IATA training in order to comply with agency regulations. Eduwhere’s IATA lithium battery training will fully prepare you for any contingency of transporting batteries whether by truck or aircraft. This training is especially important for employees who work in shipping and receiving.
After learning how to properly document, mark, label, and package shipments for transport, you will become confident in your ability to properly manage the shipping of lithium batteries. You will find out what restrictions are in place for air transport and gain knowledge of how to proceed in emergency situations.
You will learn not only about the regulations concerning lithium batteries, but also about other types of batteries classified as hazardous, such as wet batteries (lead-acid, lead-alkali, non-spillable); dry batteries (alkaline, Ni-Cd, etc.); and vehicles and equipment powered by batteries.
Are You Responsible for Handling or Shipping Lithium Batteries Contained in Equipment?
Personnel who are involved with lithium battery transport in equipment (e.g., battery-powered vehicles or electronic devices such as laptops and cell phones that run on lithium batteries) must complete DOT / IATA lithium battery training. This includes professionals who prepare Shipper’s Declaration for Dangerous goods, package shipments of equipment containing lithium batteries, and apply marks and labels to packages containing lithium batteries.
Are You Responsible for Receiving Batteries Shipped by Ground or Air in Your Department?
The responsibility for safe handling of lithium batteries and cells rests not only with those who prepare and manage the shipment, but also with those who receive such shipments.
