DOT Hazardous Materials Transportation: If your company ships hazardous materials? Do you accept hazmat shipments? Are your employees certified to ship hazmat? If your answer to any of the above is “yes” then you probably already know Compliance Solutions. If you’re new to shipping hazmat or just found out you need hazmat training you need to get to know us! Compliance Solutions is the nations largest private provider of hazmat training. Since 1995 we have helped companies across North America comply with DOT hazmat shipping regulations (49 CFR 172.704) and saved them thousands of dollars in the process! According to the DOT (The U.S.Department of Transportation) any company involved in the transport of hazardous materials by air, rail, ground or water must provide Hazmat transportaiton certification within 90 days of an employee starting work. Our DOT Hazmat Complete training is a one-day seminar designed to certify your employees in transporting hazardous materials. DOT regulations state: “Any person involved in offering a hazardous material for transportation must be properly trained…sic” Upon completion you will be able to:  Demonstrate the correct methods used for the shipping, handling and transporting of hazardous materials  Identify the proper shipping methods for hazardous materials in air, water, and land.  Recognize information needed on shipping papers for specific types of hazardous wastes  Utilize proper labeling, marking, and placarding required for hazardous waste transportation  Develop information gathering techniques needed for required incident reporting and emergency notification  Show an understanding of the documentation for shipping papers and manifests. After your initial training, you need to refresh your certification every 3 years or when the regulations "substantially change". This course qualifies as the “initial” training or “refresher” training. Be advised that should your certification lapse, you may not take part in any hazardous materials shipping functions “unsupervised” until your certification has been renewed. New employees may perform hazardous materials shipping functions for the first 90-days provided they have direct supervision. After this time they must be certified. Compliance Solutions DOT Hazmat Certification Course uses a unique "10-step approach" for shipping and handling hazardous materials properly. Each element is covered in detail through use of "real-world" examples of what “to do” and “what NOT to do” when shipping hazardous materials. DOT regulations require all students to pass a certification exam which is given at the end of the course. A Certificate of Completion signed by the Instructor and Compliance Solutions, along with a personalized wallet card will be issued upon successfully passing the exam and completing the course requirements. Industries using DOT Transportation certification include but are not limited to: • Trucking Companies • CDL Drivers • Package Delivery Companies • Medical Supply Delivery Companies • Home Medical Supply Companies • Chemical Manufacturing or Shipping • Environmental firms that package and ship hazardous waste • Treatment, Storage and Disposal Facilities • Warehouse Personnel
