If your company ships hazmat or dangerous goods, the U.S. Department of Transportation requires the general awareness, safety and security training specified in 49 CFR Part 172.704 be taken every three years. This course meets the general awareness, safety and security training requirements.

This course covers:

  • – An introduction to hazardous materials
  • – Why training is important and what the requirements are
  • – Which agencies set the requirements, and the publications which state their requirements
  • – The transport chain, including shipper and operator responsibilities within it
  • – Hazmat classifications
  • – General packing requirements and proper package selection
  • – How to mark and label packages correctly
  • – How to correctly document hazmat shipments

Please Note: This course is an overview of the regulations, and is not for qualification or certification. This course is NOT for personnel who are responsible for acceptance checklists and regulatory review to determine compliance for a given shipment. Employees responsible for determining if packages comply with relevant regulations and employees responsible for certifying shipments (by signing a dangerous goods declaration or hazmat bill of lading) will require additional training as specified by their employer.
