If you offer hazardous materials for transportation, you must ensure the training of your hazmat employees. DOT training must be in accordance with the applicable parts of the HMR. Every person who performs a function subject to the HMR must be trained and tested, and the hazardous materials employer must create and maintain records of training in accordance with Section 172.704(d). Every person such as a freight forwarder, agent or broker, who performs a function required by Part 173 must perform that function according to the Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR). This means that all hazardous materials must be properly classified, described, and packaged. All hazmat employees must receive security awareness training. In-depth security training, however, is only required for those hazmat employees whose employers must develop a security plan.
A “hazmat employee” is anyone employed by a hazmat employer who, during the course of employment, directly affects hazardous materials transportation safety including an owner-operator of a motor vehicle that transports hazardous materials in commerce. Except as provided in 172.704(c)(1), before any hazmat employee performs a function subject to the HMR, that person must be provided initial training in the performance of that function. Each hazardous materials employee must be periodically retrained at least every three years.
