Topic Federal DOT Hazmat Transportation
The most important advice for anyone working with hazardous materials to follow is to comply with the relevant regulations. The U.S. Department of Transportation’s (DOT) regulations on handling hazardous materials for commerce are found in Title 49 of the Code of Federal Regulations (49 CFR), specifically Parts 100 to 185. These are collectively known as the Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR).
There are specific requirements for how every step of the process must be complied with, from classification, identification, packaging to marking and labeling as well as to the segregation requirements for storage and while loading a transport vehicle. It is imperative that anyone involved in the transport of hazardous materials know, understand, and comply with them.
