Are you a hazmat historian? Keep your knowledge sharp with this three-minute hazmat transportation history quiz.
The 49 CFR explicitly states that “hazmat employers” must ensure their “hazmat employees” are training to perform their essential job functions [49 CFR 172.702(a)]. But who exactly needs training and what kind of training is required? We answer these questions and more.
