Accident Concerns?

Dept. of Transportation


Department of Transportation is a highly complexed area for training compliance in the trucking industry.  With the many safety and DOT requirements oversight is paramount for logistics companies.

In the US, all hazmat shipments that leave your facility must comply with the US DOT Hazardous Materials Regulations (49 CFR). Training is mandatory for managers and employees who prepare hazmat for transport. The DOT hazmat rules are stringent. Penalties for non-compliance are as high as $75,000 per day, per violation. See below for guidance on DOT’s training mandate or watch the Who Needs Hazmat Training Movie.If you also ship hazardous materials by air or vessel, see the Who Needs IATA or IMDG Dangerous Goods Training FAQ.

What companies must follow the Department of Transportation (DOT) training rules?

US DOT “hazmat employee” training rules apply to any company with employees who perform any function in any way regulated by the US DOT Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR). This includes any company with employees who:

  • Offer hazardous materials for transportation;
  • Package, mark, or label hazardous materials for transportation;
  • Load or unload hazardous materials transport vehicles;
  • Transport hazardous materials;
  • Receive and forward packages containing hazardous materials;
  • Manufacture packaging for use in transporting hazardous materials; and
  • Test hazardous material packaging.

There are no exemptions provided for small companies. Even self-employed people who ship hazardous materials as part of their job must provide training for themselves.
