DOT: Security for Shipment of Hazardous Materials

According to the US Department of Transportation (DOT), over 800,000 shipments of hazardous materials are transported in the United States every day. The materials shipped include those of chemical, petroleum, radioactive, explosive, and poisonous natures. Of the 800,000 shipments, almost 769,000 are transported by truck on the nation's roads, with the rest divided among rail, pipeline, water, and air. These hazardous materials – or "hazmats" – are classified by the DOT according to the type of hazard they present and must be transported under the proper regulations set out by the DOT. This course examines the DOT's security requirements relative to the shipment and transportation of hazardous materials. In addition, it explains the hazard classes and provides examples of the placards used when transporting hazardous materials. The course also outlines the basic elements of a security plan, defines the employers who require a plan, and explains the training required for employees of companies with plans in place.
  • identify the DOT requirements for the transportation of hazardous materials
  • identify the importance of the secure transportation of hazardous materials
  • match the hazard classes with their numbers as defined by the Department of Transportation
  • match the hazard class divisions with their numbers as defined by the Department of Transportation
  • identify which placards should be used for transporting hazardous materials in given scenarios
  • match the transportation placards to the hazardous materials they represent
  • identify the requirements of a security plan
  • recognize examples of the steps taken to develop a security plan
  • recognize examples of employers required by the DOT to implement a security plan
  • match the type of training required by the DOT to examples of employees involved in hazardous material transportation
  • identify the in-depth and awareness training requirements for employees responsible for implementing a security plan

DOT 3: Shipping Papers

This course will introduce the requirements of the Department of Transportation's Hazardous Materials Regulations, including the components of the basic description of hazardous material, general information required on the shipping paper, use of the HAZMAT Precedence Table, and general emergency response information. The proper identification, preparation, and transportation of hazardous materials affect everyone's safety. This training course may be used to meet the requirements for general awareness and familiarization training. Additional function-specific training will be provided by your employer. Learner objectives are to list the four components of the basic description of hazardous material, describe general information included on a shipping paper, identify methods to distinguish HAZMAT from non-HAZMAT on a shipping paper, and interpret information found on the Precedence Table. This course was developed with subject matter support provided by EnSafe Inc., a global professional services company focusing on engineering, environment, health and safety, and information technology.
  • put the four components of the basic description of hazardous material in the sequence in which they should be appear on shipping papers
  • describe the purpose of the HAZMAT Precedence Table
  • recognize how to label HAZMAT in a given scenario
  • recognize factors for listing hazardous and nonhazardous materials on a shipping paper

DOT 1: Introduction, Classification, and the Hazardous Materials Table

This training course will introduce the requirements of the Department of Transportation's Hazardous Materials Regulations, including definitions, the nine hazard classes, and the HAZMAT Table. The proper identification, preparation, and transportation of hazardous materials impact everyone's safety. This course may be used to meet the requirements for general awareness or familiarization training. Your employer will provide additional general awareness, function-specific safety awareness, and security awareness training. The learning objectives of the course are to define terms associated with hazardous materials transportation, classify hazards according to DOT's nine hazard classes, and recall and interpret information found in the HAZMAT Table. DOT 1: Hazardous Materials Table was developed with subject matter support provided by EnSafe Inc., a global professional services company focusing on engineering, environment, health and safety, and information technology.
  • define terms associated with hazardous materials transportation
  • classify hazards according to the DOT's nine hazard classes
  • identify information found in the HAZMAT Table columns 1 and 2
  • identify information found in the HAZMAT Table columns 3 and 4
  • identify information found in the HAZMAT Table columns 6 and 7
  • identify information found in the HAZMAT Table columns 8 through 10 and Appendix A

DOT 2: Packaging, Labeling, Marking, and Placarding

This training course will introduce the requirements of the Department of Transportation's Hazardous Materials Regulations, including packaging, labeling, marking, and placarding. The proper identification, preparation, and transportation of hazardous materials has the potential to impact everyone's safety. This training course may be used to meet the requirements for general awareness and familiarization training. Additional function-specific training will be provided by your employer. Learner objectives are to list packaging requirements and practices to ensure safe transport, cite specific information found on the Hazardous Materials Table (HMT), identify what information on the HMT means or is used for, identify appropriate labeling requirements for the safe transportation of hazardous materials, identify the proper marking requirements for hazardous materials to include both bulk and non-bulk materials, and identify the appropriate placarding requirements for the transport of hazardous materials. This course was developed with subject matter support provided by EnSafe Inc., a global professional services company focusing on engineering, environment, health and safety, and information technology.
  • cite packaging requirements and practices to ensure safe transport
  • cite specific information found on the Hazardous Materials Table (HMT)
  • identify what information on the HMT means or is used for
