In an effort to fight terrorism and improve the security of hazardous materials being shipped, the Department of Transportation has added three major security requirements to their HAZMAT regulations. Companies that handle hazardous materials must develop a “Security Plan” and give their employees “Security Awareness” and “In-Depth Security” training.
The program “DOT In-Depth HAZMAT Security Training” makes employees aware of the risks associated with transporting hazardous materials and gives them an understanding of their facility’s HAZMAT Security Plan. The kit contains a “HAZMAT Transportation Security Manual” which explains the DOT’s security requirements and provides a “fill-in-the-blank” HAZMAT Security Plan. The posters in the kit emphasize the importance of securing hazardous materials during the transportation process.
