DOT HazMat "General Awareness/Familiarization"
Since the adoption of the Global Harmonization Systems (GHS), the regulations governing the transport of hazardous materials have undergone numerous changes. DOT/Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (DOT/PHMSA) regulations (49 CFR 172.704) require that all 'hazmat employers' train their 'hazmat employees' on four different areas: General Awareness/Familiarization, Safety, Job Specific and Security Awareness. The General Awareness training has been directly affected by GHS. DOT HazMat General Awareness/Familiarization provides up-to-date, concise training to help satisfy the this requirement. The training video program covers the DOT hazard communication standards of 49 CFR Subchapter C, in these sections — the Hazard Classification System, HazMat Table (HMT), Packaging, Markings and Labels, Placards, Shipping Papers and more. The video covers shipping of RCRA hazardous waste as well as virgin DOT hazardous materials. The kit includes employee quizzes and DOT-approved recordkeeping/certification forms.
