Training Opportunity: Rail Safety & Hazardous Materials Emergency Response Training

Good Morning,

The Chlorine Institute (CI), BNSF Railway and Union Pacific Railroad are partnering to offer a TRANSCAER® Rail Safety and Hazardous Materials Emergency Response Training in Houston, TX on August 28-29. The training is provided FREE to all participants.

The flyer can be found here: Rail Safety and Hazmat Emergency Response Training

Participants can register by clicking on one of the dates in the PDF Flyer attached or by clicking on one of the links below to register online. Participants only need to register for 1 day as the same information and hands-on workshop stations and leak simulations are presented each day.


The Chlorine Institute sponsored TRANSCAER Rail Safety and Hazardous Materials Emergency Response Training is a FREE 8-hour day that provides an overview of railroad safety and CI’s mission chemicals which lead into hands-on training on the various emergency response kits and leak mitigation scenarios.  These hands-on workshops are a great resource for technician-and specialist-level training for emergency response personnel. There are presentations on Hazmat Safety & Emergency Response and Railroad 101. Following Railroad 101 participants are able to walk around and through the CI Training Car to learn more about the anatomy of general service and pressure tank cars including protective housings; valves and fittings; truck components; safety appliances; jacket, shell and head construction; placards and markings.

Morning refreshments and lunch are provided to all participates. Participants will receive a certificate emailed to them following the training.

If you have any questions regarding the training or registration please feel free to contact me!

Thank you,

Erica Bernstein
