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).

The security measures you will take to protect hazmat will depend on your company, location, and job responsibilities. It also depends on how dangerous the hazmat is and how serious it could be if it fell into the wrong hands. If you are involved in any part of the hazmat transportation process, you share in the responsibility of keeping hazmat secure until it reaches its final destination.

Hazmat Training: Security Awareness will introduce you to security risks associated with the hazmat transportation process, and how to enhance security. It will teach you how to spot a possible security threat and respond appropriately. You will also need company-specific in-depth security training.

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.
