ADR Educations DOT HAZMAT GENERAL AWARENESS TRAINING: WHO SHOULD ENROLL?
Individuals engaged in the offering or transportation of hazardous materials are mandated to undergo training. This includes employees who:
1. Load, unload, or handle hazardous materials.
2. Work in Shipping & Receiving.
3. Open packages containing potentially hazardous materials.
4. Participate in the transportation of hazardous materials.
5. Hold responsibility for the safety or security of hazardous materials.
ARE YOU INVOLVED IN HANDLING HAZARDOUS MATERIALS?
Many employees, spanning various industries, may be unaware of the necessity for DOT general awareness hazmat certification, particularly if they are not directly responsible for the hazmat transportation process. If your role involves hazmat management in any capacity – whether storing materials, marking or labeling materials for shipment, loading or unloading materials, transporting materials, or opening materials – this fundamental training is essential. The course is also a requirement for individuals involved in the creation and repair of hazardous waste shipping containers.
IS YOUR JOB CONNECTED TO PREPARING HAZARDOUS MATERIALS FOR TRANSPORTATION?
To meet compliance with DOT hazmat transportation regulations, anyone involved in any stage of hazmat transportation, whether by air, ground, rail, or sea, must complete DOT hazmat general awareness training. This course addresses the initial of the three required areas of training, with the other two being function-specific training and safety and security training.
All roles involving the packing, labeling, marking, loading or unloading, transporting, or opening of hazardous materials necessitate DOT hazmat general awareness certification. Participants completing EDUWHERE’s course gain a solid foundation for working with hazmat, acquiring comprehensive knowledge of hazardous materials and the regulations governing their storage, management, and transportation.
DO YOU DEAL WITH THE SHIPPING OR RECEIVING OF HAZARDOUS MATERIALS IN YOUR DEPARTMENT?
If hazardous materials are part of your department’s incoming or outgoing activities, general awareness training is crucial for anyone involved in these processes. EDUWHERE’s course assists in identifying hazardous materials, understanding associated security protocols, familiarizing oneself with various hazard classes and packing groups, and more.
Upon completion of the hazmat general awareness course, participants receive a certificate, score sheet, and wallet card. However, it’s important to note that according to 49 CFR 172.704(d) of the Hazardous Materials Regulations, certification is not complete until additional worksite-specific training, as required by the employer, is undertaken. Employers should maintain detailed records of training activities for formal certification issuance.
INDUSTRIES REQUIRING DOT HAZARDOUS MATERIALS GENERAL AWARENESS TRAINING COURSES
The DOT’s Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR) mandate DOT hazmat general awareness training for any employee involved in the shipping of hazardous materials at any stage. This encompasses professionals across industries where hazmat is packaged, marked, labeled, transported, or loaded/unloaded, as well as those creating or repairing hazardous material containers.
Due to the intricate nature of hazardous waste management involving various materials and procedures, general awareness hazmat training proves valuable. It provides an introduction to the extensive array of materials and underscores the level of care required in managing and regulating such materials.
While this training is foundational for all employees engaged in hazmat transportation, it does not offer exhaustive instruction on individual substances or procedures. It forms a critical component of hazmat information, and a complete hazmat education necessitates additional coursework by the individual.

Dangerous goods by road General awareness training
ADR, formally the Agreement of 30 September 1957 concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road, is a 1957 united nations treaty that governs transnational transport of hazardous materials. Until 31 December 2020, the treaty was fully named European Agreement concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road. However, as the word “European” might have given the impression that the treaty was only open for accession to European states, an amendment was decided in the end of 2019.
Concluded in Geneva on 30 September 1957 under the aegis of the United nations economic commissions for Europe, it entered into force on 29 January 1968. The agreement was modified (article 14, paragraph 3) in New York City on 21 August 1975, though these changes only took effect on 19 April 1985. A new amended ADR 2011 entered into force on 1 January 2011. Annexes A and B have been regularly amended and updated since the entry into force of ADR. Consequently, to the amendments for entry into force on 1 January 2015 (until June 2017), a revised consolidated version has been published as document ECE/TRANS/242, Vol. I and II.A further revision applies from 1 January 2017
As of 2020, 52 states are party to ADR.m
