Transporting Materials of Trade

Course Code: HMT 230

In certain cases, the "materials of trade" or MOT provisions allow for regulatory relief for materials carried in the vehicle for specific purposes.
To capitalize on the relaxed hazmat rules for materials of trade, employers must ensure that workers who carry MOTs understand the hazards of the materials they carry and the 49 CFR hazmat requirements that apply. [49 CFR 173.6(c)(4)]

  • Engaging, interactive hazmat employee training.
  • Relevant excerpts of regulations applicable to Materials of Trade (MOT)
  • Trusted compliance resources and references to simplify hazmat compliance.
