The DOT is very strict about enforcement of the HMR. For minor violations, you could be fined or placed out of service. For willful violations, penalties could include jail time. To ensure hazmat gets from Point A to Point B safely and securely, you must understand your key responsibilities as a driver.
Hazmat Training: Highway Transportation is designed to teach drivers how to safely transport hazardous materials.
Please note: 49 CFR 172.704(d) of the HMR requires each hazmat employer to create and retain a record certifying the current training of each hazmat employee. It is the responsibility of the hazmat employer to complete additional company-specific training in order to formally certify each learner. Trainers may use the J. J. Keller-issued certificate for compliance with the recordkeeping requirements in Section 172.704(d)(3). The trainer and the trainer's company are considered the "person providing the training" in Section 172.704(d)(4).
