Introduction

Anyone involved in handling, shipping, and/or transporting hazardous materials must receive training specific to their job function and the responsibilities that come with it. They must also undergo general awareness training to understand the transportation process as a whole, as well as security awareness training that prepares them to recognize potential threats to the safety of the transportation system. Any hazmat employee whose job involves driving a commercial vehicle transporting hazardous materials must receive additional 49 CFR training to avoid incidents. Drivers must also be able to identify mistakes in a shipment that may be subject to legal penalties and which in the end could affect the driver’s driving record.
This online 49 CFR training course provides required initial or recurrent 49 CFR training to participants involved with handling, shipping, and/or transport of non-bulk, non-radioactive hazardous materials by ground. Hazardous materials by ground training is based on the requirements outlined in the most current version of Title 49, Code of Federal Regulations Subpart H, Section 172.704 (49 CFR).This means they must know how to comply with all of the regulations prescribed in Title 49, Code of Federal Regulations (49 CFR) – specifically, the sections collectively known as the Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR).

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. Our 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.
