U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) regulations require initial and recurrent training of all employees who perform work functions covered by the Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR – 49 CFR Parts 171-180). Any employee whose work directly affects hazardous materials transportation safety is required to have training.
Our DOT and trucking transportation compliant safety training courses assist all employees whom handle, transport, or may come into contact with hazardous materials. The training consists of everything from controlling a skid, to HAZMAT Security awareness. Other products, such as the DOT’s HAZMAT Training regulation on Handling and Transporting Hazardous Materials provide the information necessary to comply with “General Awareness Training” as prescribed in Title 49 CFR, Part 172, Subpart H – Training.
Satisfy and standardize all of your DOT compliance training needs online to save valuable time and money.
