Course Overview:

The federal Department of Transportation regulates the transportation of hazardous materials in accordance with 49 CFR 171. The regulation requires that any employee involved in the transportation of hazardous materials receive training every 3 years. This includes any employee who transports, loads, unloads, or receives hazardous materials. It also includes anyone who arranges to ship hazardous materials or hazardous wastes, signs manifests, or prepares bills of lading for shipment of hazardous materials.

This 8-hour class will cover an overview of the DOT regulations, security, packaging groups, and requirements, waste shipping, PCBs, reportable quantities, bills of lading, materials of trade exemptions, and labeling.
