Hazmat compliance is essential to the operation and success of Foster Fuels. In 2010 the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration implemented a new safety measurement system for all motors carriers. This new system included safety and hazardous material compliance. This new system monitors all carriers through a carrier profile. The profile is available for public view. Trained motor carrier roadside inspectors can review carrier profiles in greater detail. With this new system the FMCSA can closely monitorcarriers who may fall short on safety and HM compliance.
In June 2009 Foster Fuels underwent a complete compliance review by the Federal Motor Carrier safety Administration at the request of our safety director. The result was the highest safety rating of satisfactory.
Foster Fuels is committed to its responsibility of transporting and storage of hazardous materials. Hazardous materials come under the regulatory guidelines of the Department of Transportation (DOT), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the Occupational safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
Foster’s safety director is constantly reviewing changing federal and state regulations regarding hazmat compliance that may require revised HM training classes and company polices changes for employees.
Commitment to safety and HM compliance equals trained employees, workplace safety, and safer service for our customers.
