It is usual to occasionally remark in your line of business that this has been somewhat of an occupational hazard whenever an incident or confrontation occurred. But perhaps, little did you realize that all such hazards could have been avoided, and at all costs too. This is not to suggest that in becoming risk averse, you will be burying your head in the sand, shying away from all forms of responsibility directly or indirectly related to your business.
Oh no, and quite the contrary. In fact, you would be held up as an exemplary example, a good role model, if you were one of those who took full advantage of mandated or recommended HAZMAT package testing. This is being done regularly in accordance with the US Department of Transport’s clearly stipulated guidelines. Directions are given on who to approach for regular training in the handling of all the processes associated with your packaging and transport work, as well as in all such incidents and conflicts that may arise in this moving environment.
You will notice that the above stipulation refers to one country. But it is being advised across the board. You will find that, within a functioning economy, your local authorities will have issued you with regulations to follow. Nevertheless, like a child, you should never wait to be told what to do. As a sole business owner, you should always be acting responsibly, like a good parent would. And furthermore, nothing could be easier.
And in the US, you and your staff are only required to attend HAZMAT training ever three years. That is not asking a lot of your time. And still, if you are challenged logistically, you and your staff can always attend your workshops online.
