Shipping Regulated Medical Waste

Course Code: HMT 222

 
Description

Medical wastes pose unique hazards, and distinct restrictions must be followed for their transportation.  Shippers must ensure compliance with the US DOT Hazardous Material Regulations for ground transport.  In addition, the DOT requires that medical waste shippers receive general awareness, security awareness, and function-specific training (49 CFR 172.704).  With enforcement increasing, and fines for non-compliance now $79,976 per day, per violation, it is critical that shippers of regulated medical waste receive comprehensive training on the DOT rules.

This online course is designed to help medical waste shippers meet the US DOT's training mandate. Students who complete this course will be prepared to accurately classify and name medical wastes, as well as package, mark, label, and complete shipping paper documentation for these shipments.

Registration includes an easy-to-download compliance notebook, along with Lion's top-notch reference materials.
