In many industries, employees routinely carry hazardous materials with them in a motor vehicle. Many types of hazmat are used to protect the health and safety of the driver or passengers, to support the operation or maintenance of the vehicle, or in direct support of a principle business. In certain cases, these hazardous materials qualify for exclusion from more burdensome hazmat rules under the US DOT’s “materials of trade” (MOTs) provisions.
To capitalize on the relaxed hazmat rules for materials of trade, employers must ensure workers who carry these MOTs have “function-specific” training. [49 CFR 173.6(c)(4)] This interactive online course is designed to satisfy this US DOT training requirement. Registration includes an easy-to-download compliance notebook and Lion’s top-notch digital compliance resources.
