Hazardous Materials Training: Who Needs It And How To Deliver It To Meet OSHA And/Or DOT Requirements

Webinar: ID# 1026329
Recorded On-Demand
About This Course:
Providing the necessary training for employees that work with hazardous materials can get a little complicated since two key sets of federal regulations, DOT and OSHA requirements, could apply depending on what kind of work is being done. And, while there’s some overlap between the OSHA and DOT regulations, there are some differences, too.

In general, OSHA regulates hazardous materials usage in the workplace whereas DOT regulates the transportation of hazardous materials. For traditional workplaces, the regulations cover training, information that must be provided and available, and associated recordkeeping requirements. For transportation, anyone who packages, transports or causes a hazardous material to be transported in commerce is considered a “hazmat” employer.

If you have both types of employees, much of the training that you need to provide will be similar, especially as it relates to actually working with hazardous materials. The key difference will be specific requirements that are unique to transportation. The good news is that if you need to address both OSHA and DOT regulations, developing a single program with a transportation add-on will make your employee training much more manageable.

Join us for an in-depth webinar on how best develop and implement a hazardous materials training program to ensure compliance and protect employees at your facility.

You’ll learn:
  • Key DOT and OSHA hazardous materials training requirements—and where they differ and overlap
  • The various types of hazardous materials training required for your organization’s employees
  • The difference between security awareness training and security plan training
  • The hazardous materials training requirements for a traditional workplace environment covered by OSHA regulations (such as a manufacturer)
  • How to evaluate the hazardous materials training requirement for a transportation and shipping environment covered by DOT regulations, including real-lifeexamples of different participants in the hazmat transportation process, such as:

    • Employees who package hazmat
    • Those who load and unload motor carriers
    • Employees filling out shipping papers, drivers, and others
