Transportation Of Dangerous Goods Online Safety Training Courses

california101   April 16, 2018   Comments Off on Transportation Of Dangerous Goods Online Safety Training Courses

On August 15, 2002 the federal Transportation of Dangerous Goods (TDG) regulations came into force. The mission of these regulations is to promote safety in handling and transportation of dangerous goods. There is a requirement for training transportation of dangerous goods, but how can anyone ensure that all individuals taking the training comprehend it? The challenge is that most online TDG training courses only offer a summary of the information. Few of them even work to abide by the principles of adult learning. This is a concern for anyone who travels the highways of Canada, as there are so many drivers transporting dangerous goods across the country on those same roads. When searching online TDG course, there are very few, if any online TDG courses that are more than 45 or 65 minutes in length, which is not enough time to effectively provide training. Many of these courses are simply comprised of 20 minutes of information, accompanying text and a few questions. Due to the short amount of time, these are popular courses for people only looking to produce a training card, but should that be good enough? As we know, Good enough seldom is. The Canadian Online Safety Training Association specifically choose to offer the WHEELS ON Transportation of dangerous goods course because of its adherence to the principles of adult learning. This course goes beyond most others with a comprehensive coverage of the topic. It includes a thorough explanation of the material. In addition, this specific course from Wheels On includes questions peppered throughout the course instead of at the end of the course. This is an important principle called chunking, for better retention and understanding of the course information there are small chunks of information proceed by questions, then another chunk of information and a few more… Read more »

The station is the southern terminal of the East Coast Mainline which runs between London and Edinburgh.

Battle Creek Man Killed in Fatal Train Crash

california101   March 30, 2018   Comments Off on Battle Creek Man Killed in Fatal Train Crash

Whenever approaching train tracks, it is essential to make sure that the coast is clear before crossing–regardless of whether a person is walking, or operating a motor vehicle. In both instances, getting to the other side of the tracks safely is difficult, as the train moves much faster than either a pedestrian or a car. Any experienced Detroit personal injury lawyer can attest that train crashes are devastating, almost always resulting in significant personal injury or death. These are the circumstances of a recent case where a Battle Creek man was killed by an oncoming train, after attempting to cross the tracks by foot. According to Kalamazoo law enforcement officials, an unidentified man attempted to cross the Augusta train tracks in the morning hours of May 29th. Almost instantly after stepping foot on the single railroad, an oncoming train en route to a Midwest destination smacked into him. Although no one was injured aboard the moving rail cars, the Battle Creek man was unfortunately killed by the impact of the Michigan train accident. Statistics show that in the United States, these incidents are not uncommon–according to the Federal Railroad Administration’s Office of Safety Analysis, a vehicle or pedestrian is struck by an oncoming train every two hours. Additionally, the FRA reported data stating that approximately 13,067 train crashes occurred in 2007 alone. Of that number, 8,801 people sustained serious personal injury in their accidents, while 851 people lost their lives as a result. Unfortunately, a significant number of these crashes occurred due to human error, either on behalf of the train conductor or the persons attempting to cross the track. By the example of the Battle Creek man, as well as the statistics reported from the Federal Railroad Administration, it is clear that train accidents are not only disastrous, but… Read more »

There is definitely something for everyone when it comes to layouts. And the model trains and cars created today by K-Line, Lionel, MTH Electric Trains or Williams are very, very detailed and sales are booming for these companies because of that.

These hobbyists need to understand how to recognize true originals as well as understanding how the condition of each train model effects price just like any other vintage or antique collector has to.

Commercial Truck Leasing Leaves Transportation to the Pros

california101   March 29, 2018   Comments Off on Commercial Truck Leasing Leaves Transportation to the Pros

Business owners usually go into a commercial enterprise as experts in their product or service, and learn about the ins and outs of running a business along the way. New owners without previous business experience are successful if they can quickly learn about personnel management, payroll, what services should be done in house, and which should be contracted out, when to buy equipment, and when to rent it. Sometimes, the best solution is to turn to the experts in a particular field and continue to focus on the business, rather than trying to take on additional expenses and liabilities. Commercial truck leasing is a cost-effective transportation solution for many small businesses. Purchasing a fleet is an expensive and risky enterprise if you lack experience in transportation logistics and all that it entails. Trucks are expensive, require maintenance and insurance, and qualified drivers must be hired. Investing in trucks can tie up a significant amount of your business’s capital and credit availability. Owning your own fleet of trucks also carries with it a significant degree of liability. If you are not careful about how your business is structured, you could be hit with a significant loss in the event that one of your drivers is involved in an accident. Opting for commercial truck leasing leaves the business of transportation logistics to professionals. A business specializing in commercial truck leasing can screen and hire qualified drivers, maintain the fleet of vehicles, ensure that the vehicles are properly insured, and shoulder some of the liability burden. Additionally, trucks, like any vehicle, depreciate in value. Just like leasing a car for your personal use, commercial leasing can guarantee that you have access to a new, state of the art vehicle with the most modern safety features. Like any vehicle, automobiles require maintenance, including annual… Read more »

Delft’s New Train Station

california101   March 27, 2018   Comments Off on Delft’s New Train Station

Info & Images: Courtesy Mecanoo Photography: Harry Cock Intro: Mecanoo Architects design the new Delft station, marking one’s arrival at Delft as a ceremonial and memorable experience… Copy: Delft’s new train station is now in use. It was officially opened on Saturday, 28th February 2015. The station, in combination with municipal offices and the new city hall, sits atop a new train tunnel built in place of the old concrete viaduct that has divided the city in two since 1965. From the outset, Mecanoo’s idea has been to design a station that makes it clear to visitors that they have arrived in Delft. Says Francine Houben, Mecanoo’s creative director, -Coming up the escalators, the impressive ceiling with the historic map of Delft unfolds. When you look outside, you see the city and the old station as a modern -View of Delft’ by the painter Johannes Vermeer. Arriving in Delft is now an unforgettable experience!- The character of Delft, epitomised by the combination of past and future, was the starting point for the design led by Francesco Veenstra of Mecanoo. A vaulted ceiling features an enormous historic 1877 map of Delft and its surroundings, connecting the station with the city hall that is currently under construction. Within the station hall, walls and columns are adorned with a contemporary re-interpretation of Delft Blue tiles. In 2017, you will be able to walk directly from the station into the city hall. The glass skin of the building is designed to reflect the Dutch skies. The panels of fused glass with lens-like spheres reference a vernacular window design that can be seen throughout the historic city. The combination and rhythm of open panels of high performance glass and closed fused glass panels enable a high degree of energy efficiency. Throughout the design process the… Read more »
