  • Identify hazardous materials and the basic hazard classes and divisions;
  • Use the Hazardous Materials Table and interpret the information contained therein;
  • Identify the information required for preparing hazardous material shipping papers;
  • Understand the requirements for marking, labeling, and placarding of hazardous material shipments;
  • Summarize the requirements for proper packaging, loading, and unloading of hazardous material shipments;
  • Understand the carrier requirements for various modes of transportation including highway, rail, air, and water; and
  • Outline the basic protocols for recognizing and responding to potential security threats.

This course is designed by OSHA Certified Outreach Trainers and is updated and reviewed as soon as new requirements or regulations are issued by OSHA, DOT, and other regulatory agencies.

A FINAL NOTE

In order to ensure compliance with federal regulations, always consult a current copy of the HMR and any subsequent final rules published in the Federal Register.
