More than four billion tons of hazardous materials (HazMat) are transported annually in the United States by air, highway, rail, and vessel. HazMat plays a critical role in our daily lives but transporting it introduces risks to the public, the environment, and property.
Employees involved in the packaging, marking, labeling, and transporting of hazardous materials must be familiar with the handling and safeguarding of hazardous materials as prescribed in the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) regulations.
HazMat Awareness covers Hazardous Materials Regulations with a focus on the proper handling, packaging, marking, labeling, placarding, and transport of the hazardous materials.
