DOT: Security for Shipment of Hazardous Materials
According to the US Department of Transportation (DOT), over 800,000 shipments of hazardous materials are transported in the United States every day. The materials shipped include those of chemical, petroleum, radioactive, explosive, and poisonous natures. Of the 800,000 shipments, almost 769,000 are transported by truck on the nation's roads, with the rest divided among rail, pipeline, water, and air. These hazardous materials – or 'hazmats' – are classified by the DOT according to the types of hazard they present and must be transported under the proper regulations set out by the DOT. This course examines the DOT's security requirements relative to the shipment and transportation of hazardous materials. In addition, it explains the hazard classes and provides examples of the placards used when transporting hazardous materials. The course also outlines the basic elements of a security plan, defines the employers who require a plan, and explains the training required for employees of companies with plans in place.

Hazardous Materials: How to Package Small Quantities
This activity-based course covers Department of Transportation (DOT) requirements for packaging and shipping small quantities of hazardous materials by highway within the United States.

This course builds on those concepts as they relate to packaging small quantities for shipment by putting you into situations where you'll identify materials in the DOT Hazardous Materials Table and determine whether an exception applies and how it affects the packaging, marking, labeling, and preparation of shipping papers for small quantities of different types of hazardous materials in specific situations. This course does not address the requirements for shipping small quantities of hazardous materials by aircraft, rail, or vessel.
