The European Agreement concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road

The transportation of hazardous materials via road is regulated by international standards and subject to rigorous enforcement. A majority of European nations adhere to the Agreement concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road (ADR). While ADR provides a comprehensive framework, individual countries aligning with ADR enact specific safety protocols through their national legislation.
ADR serves the crucial role of ensuring that the transportation of dangerous goods across borders is unimpeded, granted that the transported goods, vehicles, and drivers adhere to the stipulated regulations. The inception of ADR dates back to 1968, and it is overseen by the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE). A significant aspect of ADR is its regular updates, occurring biennially, which incorporate advancements in technology to enhance the safety standards governing the transportation of hazardous materials by road.

Gain a comprehensive understanding of the most recent regulations governing the transportation of hazardous materials by sea, as per the guidelines outlined in the International Maritime Dangerous Goods (IMDG) Code.

The Department of Transportation (DOT) and the International Maritime Organization (IMO) mandate both initial and recurrent training every three years for individuals engaged in the transportation of hazardous materials by vessel.

1. Preparing hazardous materials for shipment via vessel
2. Classifying, packaging, marking, labeling, and placarding hazardous materials
3. Adhering to specific requirements for flammable substances
4. Identifying marine pollutants
5. Preparing necessary transport documents
6. Ensuring compliance with IMDG recordkeeping obligations
7. Adapting to the latest amendments in the IMDG Code that may impact your shipments of hazardous materials.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.
