Created specifically for the Department of Transportation's HAZMAT Training regulation on Handling and Transporting Hazardous Materials, this program provides the information necessary to comply with the regulation's "General Awareness" training requirement. (While this program can be used by itself, it can also be used as a companion product to MARCOM's DOT HAZMAT "Safety Training" video/ DVD training program).
MARCOM's video/DVD training program "Handling and Transporting Hazardous Materials: A General Awareness Program" focuses on employees who handle hazardous materials. The program reviews a number of topics aimed at making employees more aware of situations in which they may encounter hazardous chemicals, the nature of the hazards the chemicals may have, and the issue of taking appropriate security measures when dealing with hazardous materials that the DOT has added to the regulation.
Areas covered in the program include:
The regulation itself.
Hazardous materials, definitions and classes.
Hazard "Indicators", such as Labels, Shipping Papers and Placards.
Where hazardous materials may be encountered.
Transport (trucks, ships, rail, etc.).
Security risks and terrorism.
The program comes with a comprehensive leader's guide, reproducible scheduling & attendance form, employee quiz, training certificate and training log.
Available on VHS or DVD, in English or Spanish.
