Other Frequently Asked Questions

Click to Learn More What are the consequences of not training?

Case Study: The FAA proposed a civil penalty against British Airways in the amount of $195k. In August of 2014, British Airways allegedly offered for shipment a box containing a chemical oxygen generator to American Airlines for stateside repair without properly declaring it. The shipment was not properly classed, described, packaged, marked, or labeled. Hazardous materials regulations classify oxygen generators as FORBIDDEN aboard passenger aircraft due to their extreme flammability. British Airways also failed to adequately train its employees for shipping hazardous materials.

Key Takeaway: Even a single mishandled hazardous materials shipment can have severe consequences. Oxygen generators were banned as cargo on passenger flights following the 1996 ValuJet plane crash that killed everyone onboard. British Airways paid a hefty civil penalty for its failure to properly train its employees for shipping hazardous materials.
