Competence is developed over time by implementing the knowledge acquired through a training course to on-the-job work processes. Therefore, in addition to this online course it is important that you receive additional on-site training from your employer.

Labels are standard hazmat identifiers and communicate important information about the hazards associated with transportation of potentially hazardous materials to personnel who handle these packages, as well as to first responders in the event of an emergency. This DOT Hazmat Function Specific Training: Labeling course will provide guidance on interpreting general labeling requirements as set forth in the HMR and any exceptions to these requirements, the procedure for affixing primary and subsidiary hazard labels to hazmat packaging, and the label specifications relating to durability, size, design, color, and form identification.
