Additional Training

dot-hazmat-truckingHAZMAT employers are required to train new HAZMAT employees within 90 days of employment or assuming new HAZMAT related job responsibilities. Direct supervision is required of the employee performing a hazardous material function until training is complete. DOT requirements specify HAZMAT employees need to be retrained and tested at least once every three years. Highway carriers where HMR applies must train and test HAZMAT employees as required prior to involving them in the transportation of hazardous materials.

Please note that this DOT HAZMAT Highway course is not meant to replace company-specific or function-specific training provided by your employer on equipment use and procedures for your particular work environment. You must be trained by your employer on the hazards, equipment, engineering and administrative controls, safe work practices and emergency plans specific to your role and workplace. Employers need to evaluate employee needs for additional DOT hazardous material training and training in the use of personal protective equipment used on the job.

In ALL situations, employers are required to ensure their employees are adequately trained to do their job.
