The Department of Transportation has added three major security requirements to their HAZMAT regulations. DOTs improvements of the regulations address terrorism and security of Hazardous Materials during the shipping process. Companies that handle Hazardous Materials are required to develop a "Security Plan", give their employees " DOT HAZMAT Security Awareness training", and "In-Depth Security" training. Our "DOT HAZMAT Security Awareness" training programs help employers provide their employees with the entire security awareness portion of the DOT training. These products teach the employees to be aware of all the security risks associated with transporting hazardous materials. Topics covered in these products include: The DOT's HAZMAT security requirements, Security risks associated with transporting hazardous materials, Methods that have been designed to enhance transportation security, How to recognize security risks, Responding to possible security threats, and more.
OSHA's Position On HAZMAT Security Awareness Training
Since both OSHA and DOT are U.S. federal agencies, they generally work in conjunction with each other when they have issues that are overlapping. Such is the case when dealing with hazardous materials. In recent years, DOT has subsequently employed additional materials security regulations, mostly devoted to terrorism concerns. However, within a company’s DOT Hazmat security plan, there are also complimenting OSHA requirements that deal with procedures, which are meant to protect an employee’s safety when working with, or in the vicinity of hazardous materials. In this section, we offer training tools that cover DOT and OSHA’s security directives pertaining to:
- HAZCOM’s Adoption of GHS-Regulated Hazardous Materials Labeling Standardization
- Mandatory Hazmat Security Training (DOT 49 CFR 172 Subpart H)
- Hazmat Security Personnel Requirements (OSHA 29 CFR 1910.120)
- Hazmat Written Plans
- How to Identify Potential Hazmat Threats to Security
- Reporting Potential Hazmat Security Breaches (OSHA 1910.1450 App A)
- Other Hazmat security issues.
In addition to our comprehensive, high quality video presentations, we can also provide other types of training tools that can either be obtained separately or come bundled with many of our video training programs. These include; Dispatch Manager Software (J.J. Keller’s “Dispatch Manager”), Security Awareness Booklets, Instructor’s Guides, Security Awareness Posters, Customizable PowerPoint® Presentations and other Hazmat security training tools. These materials will allow you to create a training program that can be effectively utilized for instructing new employees as well as meeting mandatory refresher training class objectives.
