DOT HAZMAT General Awareness focuses on employees who handle as well as transport hazardous materials. The course reviews a number of topics aimed at making employees more aware of situations in which they may encounter hazardous chemicals… and the nature of the hazards associated with the chemicals. Created specifically for the Department of Transportation’s HAZMAT training regulation on Handling and Transporting Hazardous Materials, this course provides the information necessary to comply with the regulation’s General Awareness training requirement. (While this course can be used by itself, it can also be used as a companion product to MARCOM’s DOT HAZMAT Safety Training course).
Topics covered in this program:
Include the regulation itself, hazardous materials, definitions and classes, hazard communication, hazard indicators, such as labels, shipping papers and placards, where hazardous materials may be encountered, packaging and shipping, transport (trucks, ships, rail, etc.), storage, security issues and more.
