Hazmat Postal Shipper

Course Code: HMT 381

 
Description
The USPS hazmat rules are stricter than 49 CFR, FedEx, or UPS shipping requirements. Not all hazardous materials are mailable, even when packaged in limited quantities, and USPS maintains unique packaging and marking rules that shippers must follow. Even small mistakes can lead to rejected shipments, re-packaging, incidents in transit, and costly civil penalties.

If you ship by USPS Air, the hazmat rules are even more restrictive. Build the in-depth expertise to identify which materials are mailable; which are prohibited; and how to ensure safe, on-time delivery of hazmat by mail.

Who should take this online course?

Small businesses, e-commerce shippers, and any organization that ships or returns regulated hazardous materials—flammables, lithium batteries, toxic substances, medical samples, dry ice, or any other regulated material—using the United States Postal Service (USPS) as a carrier.
 
This course is designed to supplement required "hazmat employee" training required by US DOT for shippers subject to the 49 CFR Hazardous Materials Regualtions (HMR). 

Note: This online course is not intended as full hazardous materials training for shippers that offer fully regulated hazardous materials by transport with common carriers like UPS, FedEx, and DHL. All “hazmat employees” subject to US DOT PHMSA’s 49 CFR Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR) must complete training in line with US DOT’s 49 CFR 172.704 requirements once every three years.
