DOT HazMat/Dangerous Goods Training

Department of Transportation HazMat/Dangerous Goods Training

HazMat Solutions designed this training program to meet the federal guidelines for industries that transport, ship or receive hazardous materials. The training includes placarding, labeling, packaging, manifests, Hazardous Material Awareness and Function Specific Training – all are discussed as they relate to your facility. HM 232 Security Awareness Training requires all HazMat employers to include transportation security, suspicious packages, suspicious activity and product contamination as part of the initial training program; and we now have added Lithium Ion Batteries and how to complete a Hazardous Waste Manifest using the DOT HazMat Table.

Who Needs This Training?

Per U.S. DOT Regulations
(49 CFR Part 172, Subpart H)

In the United States, all HazMat shipments that leave or arrive at your facility must comply with the US DOT Hazardous Materials Regulations (49 CFR). Training is mandatory for managers and employees who load, unload, sign manifests or prepare HazMat for transport. The DOT HazMat rules are stringent. Penalties for non-compliance for individuals and corporations can be extreme.
