DOT Hazmat Employee with Packaging Course
May 12, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm
Do you package and ship hazmat? The DOT regulations found in 49 CFR 171-173 list an extensive number of requirements on the shipping and packaging of hazardous wastes that can be somewhat confusing. However, failure to comply could lead to some hefty fines, not to mention the endangerment of people’s lives. The United States Department of Transportation (DOT) has established a series of regulations governing training programs for what are termed Hazmat Employees. The DOT training program is sometimes referred to as HM-181 or HM-126 training. It applies to anyone who meets any of the following criteria:
are a person who offers a hazardous material for transportation;
are a person involved in the transportation of a hazardous material;
are a person who labels or marks packages that are being transported;
are a person who packages hazardous materials for shipment;
are a person who must select the different types of packaging that are required for the materials that you ship;
…then you need this course to guide you successfully through the seemingly never-ending list of regulations that control what you can and cannot do in regards to packaging/shipping hazardous materials.
