DOT HAZMAT - General Awareness

Created specifically for the Department of Transportation's HAZMAT regulation on Handling and Transporting Hazardous Materials, these products provide the information necessary to comply with the regulation's "General Awareness" training requirement. (While these products can be used by themselves, they can also be used as companion products to MARCOM's DOT HAZMAT "Safety Training" products).

Schoolcraft Publishing's training products on "DOT HAZMAT General Awareness" focus on employees who handle and transport hazardous materials. The products review a number of topics aimed at making these employees more aware of situations in which they may encounter hazardous chemicals, the nature of the hazards these materials present and how to safely handle hazardous materials.

Topics covered in these products include:

  • The purpose of DOT hazardous materials regulations in 49 CFR 172.700.
  • The definition of "hazardous materials".
  • Required employee training.
  • Shipping papers.
  • 24-hour emergency response telephone numbers.
  • "Hazard class" labels and placards.
  • Other labels that may indicate materials are hazardous.
