For the last 2 weeks, six I.A.M. C.R.E.S.T Associate Instructors from IAM Local Lodge 601/District Lodge 143 at Alaska Airlines completed a Train the Trainer program and provided a Pilot Hazardous Material Enhancement Awareness class for IAM members and managers of Alaska Airlines at Seattle International Airport. The CREST Associate Instructors demonstrated a professional ability while delivering a quality program.
The classes were developed by IAM CREST specifically to enhance the current training provided by Alaska Airlines. Workers who handle dangerous goods by air receive training under a grant funded by the DOT Pipeline and Hazardous Material Safety Administration.
The classes delivered in Seattle WA. are the first in a series that will be delivered to Alaska Airlines hazmat employees addressing the importance of identifying dangerous goods, the associated hazards, and proper handling procedures.
