HAZMAT is short for Hazardous Materials. HAZMAT training when its about spill clean up or emergency response its called HAZWOPER training.
HAZMAT Training when its about shipping or transportation its called HAZMAT Training or HAZMAT for short in the industry.
Internationally or outside of the USA, HAZMAT is referred to as Dangerous Goods.
Dangerous Goods Training can also be called DG or DGR Training for short.
OSHA, DOT, IATA & IMDG allows online HAZMAT/DGR training as one of the accepted methods of training for HAZMAT/DGR training. The employer is still responsible for providing proper PPE and specific training on employer policies and procedures.
DOT Hazmat Training is a DOT requirement for any worker in the shipping, logistics and transportation industry. Workers are required to complete hazmat training within 90 days of employment and a refresher every 3 years. The DOT, IATA and IMDG regulations require Hazmat safety training.
The 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.
The Federal hazardous materials transportation law (49 CFR) is the statute pertaining to the transportation of hazmat in the United States, and requires the training of ALL hazmat employees. The purpose of this training is to increase a hazmat employee’s safety awareness and to be an essential element in reducing hazmat incidents.
The Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR) includes training requirements in several sections of Title 49 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) as follows:
Shippers preparing hazmat for transport by air are required training every 2 years by IATA. This class covers all required topics including general awareness/familiarization, function specific, safety, and security awareness. Be prepared to ship via Fedex or UPS and many others.
Shippers preparing hazmat for transport by sea are required training every 3 years by the International Maritime Organization (IMO). This class covers all the IMDG dangerous goods required topics including general awareness/familiarization, function specific, safety, and security awareness. Be prepared to ship via vessel.
