Our online certification courses focus on 49 CFR training requirements for HAZMAT shipping. Training is mandatory for both managers and employees, and penalties for non-compliance can cost tens of thousands of dollars per day, per violation. There are no exceptions or limitations for HAZMAT training; even businesses that transport only a small amount of hazardous materials must be trained.
DOT strictly regulates the transport of hazardous materials. Failure to comply with the HMR risks the lives and safety of everyone who drives, rides, flies, or sails, and anyone involved in the chain of transportation. Everyone involved in the transportation of hazardous materials must be familiar with, and have current knowledge of, the HMR.
The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) has numerous regulations that govern the preparation and handling of hazardous materials. All employees whose work directly impacts the safe transport of hazardous materials must undergo initial and refresher DOT HAZMAT training.
All hazmat shipments must comply with the DOT's Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR), found in Title 49 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). The HMR sets forth standards for classification, packaging, hazard communication, emergency response information, training of HAZMAT employees, transportation, incident reporting, and security. DOT HAZMAT regulations govern the transportation of hazardous materials in interstate, intrastate, and foreign commerce.
