April 2022 • Florida Pool Prosm 13 Scholarship tride In memory of Brian Kelly 2021 Thank you to our sponsors Seems it is getting tougher on our roads with people moving to the great state of Florida daily. So, our job of making sure everyone gets home safely each night is getting that much tougher. Part of that safety is carrying hazardous chemicals and keeping the public safe in our daily travels. Thankfully, FDOT hasn’t paid attention to our industry but, things could change at any time so we need to be ready. Rob Sanger and I did an overview of DOT regulations at the Everything Under the Sunsm Expo and had multiple conversations during the show about tanks in trucks, labeling, luggage carriers and much more. This made me think DOT regulation is the perfect topic going into pool season. Now, I am no expert on DOT and after reading though code prior to the show, it’s a full-time job. I am very grateful to David Rivers with RS Compliance Group for providing FSPA the curriculum. DOT regulations are complex with multiple chapters, so this is a really watered-down version for pool service. There are basically three ways to be classified depending on how much, container size, and trade use vs. delivery By Ken Moyer, Brenntag Mid-South, Inc. / kmoyer@brenntag.com Hazardous material safety and DOT THE SCOOP ON SERVICE
