Hazardous materials transportation is a very broad topic spanning many different modes of transportation. The SafetySkills hazmat transportation series has been adapted from materials produced by the United States Department of Transportation (DOT) to help train employees who perform functions covered under the Hazardous Materials Regulations, or the HMR. This introductory module is the first in the series, and will help hazmat employees recognize the purpose and structure of the HMR, and its training requirements. It will also provide an introduction to the DOT hazard classification system. This module is a prerequisite for the other modules in the hazmat series. This course is presented in English and Spanish.
This course references 49 CFR Parts 107 and 171-185, the Hazardous Materials Regulations.
