Dry ice is commonly used in many industries and poses a variety of health and safety threats, explosion and suffocation among them. Therefore, dry ice is regulated as a hazardous material by the U.S. DOT and the International Air Transport Association (IATA), and training is required for employees who prepare shipments containing dry ice for transport by air. Civil violations for non-compliance can be as high as $79,976 per day, per incident.
