Every day, thousands of companies send out thousands more shipments to locations throughout the country; and we rely on transportation by land, air, and sea in order to get these shipments to their destinations. Some of these products require special care in handling; those containing hazardous materials. Handling hazardous materials is of particular importance because of the obvious dangers they pose to your health; in the United States alone, there are over 800,000 shipments of hazardous materials every day. As such, it is very important you know how to properly deal with these substances, both in a normal environment as well as in a potential emergency situation. The U.S. Department of Transportation has developed a set of materials specifically addressing the transportation of hazardous materials, and you will learn about them through this training video.

These regulations, located in 49 CFR Parts 100-185, are also known as the Hazardous Materials Regulations, or HMR. There are several key elements you must gather from these HazMat regulations, including the different classes of hazardous materials, how to properly label them, and, more specifically, how best to package and ship each substance. Learn all of these components, and others, through the material presented here. A hazardous material is, in short, a substance capable of posing an unreasonable risk to health, safety, or property. Utilize this lesson, and the HazMat regulations, in order to protect yourself and others from the inherent risks hazardous materials pose during transport.
