HazMat Training Courses


HazMat Training Courses

HAZMAT is an abbreviation for "hazardous materials". The DOT defines a hazardous material as any item or chemical which, when being transported or moved in commerce, is a risk to public safety or the environment.

Hazardous Materials are regulated under the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration regulations (49 CFR 100-199) and are classified as follows:

  • Class 1 - Explosives
  • Class 2 - Gases
  • Class 3 - Flammable Liquids
  • Class 4 - Flammable Solids
  • Class 5 - Oxidising Substances and Organic Peroxides
  • Class 6 - Toxic and Infectious Substances
  • Class 7 - Radioactive Material
  • Class 8 - Corrosives
  • Class 9 - Miscellaneous Dangerous Goods
The Hazardous Materials Regulations require every hazmat employer to train, test, and certify every hazmat employee within 90 days of employment, within 90 days of any change in job function, and every three years as a refresher for:
  • General awareness/familiarization training
  • Security awareness training
  • Function-specific training
In addition, drivers who transport hazmat are also required to take modal-specific training.

HazMat Training: The Hazardous Materials Identification System

According to Wikipedia, the Hazardous Materials Identification System (HMIS) is a hazard rating system that uses color bar labels to identify and provide information about chemical hazards.
