DOT: HAZMAT: Security Awareness
Millions of tons of hazardous materials (HAZMATs) are transported by trucks, trains, pipelines, ships, and planes daily. These materials are essential for our economy and community, but terrorist attacks have taught us we must be more alert and secure. This online training discusses how DOT regulations can prevent dangerous substances from falling into the wrong hands. HAZMAT workers learn what types of security risks exist, as well as how to recognize and eliminate threats. Internal security is important to every facility, but especially to one that stores and transports hazardous materials. Viewers will understand the importance of awareness at the workplace. HAZMAT workers will learn how to use the DOT Emergency Handbook to review how specific substances can cause harm if used incorrectly. Additionally, viewers are shown how to keep HAZMATs safe during shipping and transport.
