DOT HazMat GHS Training

DOT HazMat/GHS Training and Dangerous Goods Training

Function Specific training is required for all HazMat employees under the U.S. DOT Hazardous Materials Regulations (49 CFR Part 172, Subpart H). HazMat training is required within 90 days for new employees and must be repeated every three years or periodically as rules change. We provide you with an exclusive educational experience by using expert instructors, engaging lectures, and hands-on exercises. We now include PHMSA’s HM-215K and HM-215L Final Rule, OSHA Hazard Communication Standard (HAZCOM) revisions, and Globally Harmonized Systems(GHS). OSHA required updated HAZCOM training by December 1, 2013.
HazMat Solutions designed this training program to meet the federal guidelines for industries that transport, ship or receive hazardous materials. The training includes placarding, labeling, packaging, manifests, Hazardous Material Awareness and Function Specific Training – all are discussed as they relate to your facility. HM 232 Security Awareness Training requires all HazMat employers to include transportation security, suspicious packages, suspicious activity and product contamination as part of the initial training program.
