Introduction

The United States Department of Transportation’s (DOT) Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) legally requires that anyone involved in the process of handling, shipping, or transporting hazardous materials by ground in commerce must undergo training before they can legally handle, ship, or otherwise have anything to do with such materials. This means they must know how to comply with all of the regulations prescribed in Title 49, Code of Federal Regulations (49 CFR) - specifically, the sections collectively known as the Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR).

General TRAINING OBJECTIVES

    • Properly classify or understand the classification requirements of substances and articles to their proper hazard class
    • Assign or verify the assignment of substances and articles to an appropriate identification name and associated UN number
    • Select or verify the correct packaging for the hazardous materials being shipped and understand applicable packing requirements
    • Select or apply the correct marks, labels, and placards for the material being shipped
    • Accurately complete or verify the shipping paper requirements for the transport of hazardous materials by ground
    • Understand the requirements for security, safety, and emergency response as they relate to shipments of hazardous materials by ground and understand the requirements for training as required by the appropriate national authorities
