PHMSA on the Move in Texas

A number of changes have recently been made to the Hazardous Materials Security Plan requirements to clarify and enhance current security requirements, including requirements that apply to who needs a security plan and employee training.

In addition, PHMSA has had a busy month inspecting the hazmat security plans of petroleum distributors in Texas. This might be a good time to review your plan to make sure it covers all of the requirements.

PHMSA has strengthened the in-depth security training requirements to include specific actions and responsibilities of each employee in the event of a security breach (CFR49 Part 172.704). Recurrent training must be done every three years or whenever changes are made to the plan.

For the complete requirements go here. If you need assistance developing or revising a Hazardous Materials Security Plan let me know at roadknowledge@gmail.com or just comment if you have questions.
