Hazmat Ground Shipper Training

The US DOT requires training for ALL hazmat employees, including hazmat employers with direct supervision. Initial training must occur within 90 days of hire. Retraining is mandatory every 3 years and when rules or the employee's job responsibilities change. 

DOT Hazardous Materials Regulations provide detailed training requirements to reduce hazmat incidents. Violations of the HMR, including training, are subject to a maximum civil penalty up to $75,000 for a knowing violation and $175,000 for a violation that results in death, serious illness, or severe injury to any person or substantial destruction of property.
