The US Department of Energy (DOE) has shipped large amounts and a variety of radioactive material by rail for years. The number of rail shipments is expected to increase in coming years. With the increase in rail shipments comes the increased risk for rail incidents involving radioactive material.
The Rail Workers Hazmat Training Program was awarded funding to provide safety training for rail workers to increase their knowledge of the transportation of radioactive materials. To meet this training need, the Rail Program at NLC will conduct a two-day Radiological Transportation Train the Trainer course on April 25-27, 2013.
