Who Should Take This Course?

At a minimum, The Department of Transportation requires the following personnel to have training under 49 CFR 382 and 40:

  • Transportation Safety Personnel (all levels from Safety Clerk to Director)
  • Transportation Dispatch personnel
  • All HR and Safety Personnel whose company is required to meet DOT drug testing standards
  • Truck Drivers
  • Transportation Training Instructors
  • Personnel whose responsibility includes development of drug testing programs
  • Attorney’s specializing in Transportation

Applicable Regulation/s

49 CFR 172.704

Overview

DOT Drug and Alcohol Testing per 49 CFR 382 and 40. This course is designed to meet the DOT regulations and training requirements for Controlled Substances and Alcohol Use and Testing.

Train your supervisors to help keep impaired drivers off the road! According to 49 CFR 382.603, all persons designated to supervise drivers must receive at least “60 minutes of training on alcohol misuse and 60 minutes on controlled substance abuse.” This course will help satisfy those requirements!

The Department of Transportation requires any supervisor who sends or refers employees for drug and/or alcohol testing under a DOT certified drug testing program become trained in the administration and implementation of these procedures. Typically, any driver who drives either local or over the road must have an initial drug and alcohol screen. These same employees are required to be part of a random testing plan that is managed by the company or a Third Party Administrator (TPA). This training program will ensure the supervisor develops and maintains a complete testing program while limiting the company’s legal and regulatory exposure affiliated with these type of activities.

Course Objectives

After completing the 49 CFR 382 and 40: Controlled Substances and Alcohol Use and Testing course, students will:

  • Understand the need for employee education about alcohol and substance abuse in the workplace.
  • Identify the indicators of alcohol and substance abuse in yourself or others.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Bonus: This online training NOW INCLUDES an “Awareness Level” certificate for Security Awareness! In conjunction with the Office of Hazardous Materials Safety, Compliance Solutions now provides FREE online training for Hazardous Materials Transportation Security Awareness. This training is an integral part of the new DOT Security Requirements for Hazmat Shippers, Carriers and Receivers (Please note that to be in full compliance with the new regulations, Students MUST review their company’s Security Plan as well as receive site specific training- See your Compliance Officer for more information).

Who Should Take This Course?

This online training course will re-certify those employees who have already completed DOT Hazardous Materials Transportation Training. DOT mandated refresher training insures that employees who come in contact with hazardous materials or perform functions in a shipping process receive competent training. Not providing competent training can jeopardize hazmat shipments, your employees and other people who may come in contact with hazmat shipments. Mistakes due to lack of knowledge or simply passing on the wrong information to another person in the process are the primary reason for failed shipments and exposure to hazmat due to improper labeling, packaging and/or documentation. If employees do not thoroughly understand DOT regulations, cannot identify or read hazard classes, use incorrect or inferior packaging or provides incorrect placarding, that employee jeopardizes the shipment and every person in the shipping process.

This course is intended for individuals who manage hazardous materials in their job. This includes employees who:

  • Prepare hazardous materials’ shipping papers and/or manifests;
  • Prepare hazardous materials for shipping
  • Handle hazardous materials before, during, and after shipment
  • Handle containers or packaging containing hazardous materials;
  • Are responsible for the safety of hazardous materials; and
  • Own or operate vehicles that transport hazardous materials.

Note: Drivers who transport the shipments should have be trained in 49 CFR 172.704 (this course) as well as maintain a separate hazmat endorsement for their Commercial Drivers License (CDL). This training DOES NOT replace or act as a substitute for a driver’s CDL Hazmat Endorsement.

Applicable Regulation/s

49 CFR 172.704

Overview

The transportation of hazardous materials and wastes is becoming increasingly difficult with the development of new products requiring specialized transportation methods. As a result, the regulations that govern the transportation of hazardous materials are constantly undergoing improvement. New containment designs and specifications are being developed daily. Recent technology has provided more efficient methods to ship goods such as more compacted packaging for non-bulk shipping containers.

The nuclear industry throughout the world has grown with the development of nuclear power and nuclear pharmaceuticals that provides a better life for everyone. As a direct result of the use of nuclear technology, we now have increased the amount of radioactive waste that must be safely transported and stored.

A combination of all these factors results in more hazardous materials than ever before on out highways at any given time. Accidents have been few, but increased awareness by enforcement agencies, news media and the public in the potential dangers involved in the transportation of hazardous materials has resulted in safer regulations and citations of carriers for violations of the regulations.

This Online Course meets DOT requirements for training of personnel engaged in Hazardous Materials Transportation, including hazardous material handling, hazardous waste handling, shipping and manifest documents, proper markings, labels, placards, emergency communication, emergency procedures, and emergency notification.

Course Objectives

At the conclusion of this course, students will be able to:

  • Identify the proper shipping methods for hazardous materials in air, water, and land.
  • Recognize information needed on shipping papers for specific types of hazardous wastes
  • Utilize proper labeling, marking, and placarding required for hazardous waste transportation
  • Develop information gathering techniques needed for required incident reporting and emergency notification
  • Show understanding of the documentation for shipping papers and manifests.
