Hazardous materials (hazmat) can be a risk to health, safety, and property when shipped. The Department of Transportation (DOT) decides what items are considered hazmat.
The Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR) are a set of rules created by The Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA).
Placards, like labels, are both color-coded and symbol coded. However, they are larger because they are placed on vehicles and large containers used for transport.
Hazmat Training: Placarding is designed to help satisfy the function-specific training requirements regarding hazmat placarding.
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). Because of this, trainers should maintain additional records documenting a description or copy of the additional company-specific training materials provided to each learner.
Hazmat Training: Placarding assumes the learner has Hazmat General Awareness, Security Awareness, and Safety knowledge already gained from experience or successful completion of appropriate training. Specifically, the learner must be able to:
These prerequisites can be fulfilled by using J. J. Keller's Hazmat: General Awareness Training, Hazmat: Safety Training, and Hazmat: Security Awareness Training courses.
Regulations Covered: 49 CFR Parts 107-180 and 49 CFR Part 397
Language: Available in English or Spanish
"With J. J. Keller Training, we can train employees individually, instead of bringing them all into a classroom at one time - shutting down production. By training one employee at a time with headphones on, there are no distractions."
