Course

Dangerous Goods General Awareness Training

General awareness training is not merely a supplementary course to function-specific training, which are training courses that focus more specifically on a particular mode of transport. It is also, and more importantly, a critical program for anyone involved in the handling and shipping of hazardous materials. The U.S Department of Transportation (DOT) understands this, which is why, as it has ingrained into federal law with 49 CFR Part 172, Subpart H, Section 172.704 it requires general awareness and security awareness training for all hazmat employees at least once every three years.

The Dangerous Goods General Awareness Training, which is accompanied by the free Security Awareness Training, provides training in the nine hazard classes; enabling the identification of dangerous goods during transportation by the use of labels, markings, identification numbers, and shipping papers; specific duties for the shipping process; and emergency response information. This course is intended for employees of companies which handle non-bulk hazardous materials, in order to provide them with an awareness of the dangerous goods that they will be handling during any point in the transportation process. Completing Hazmat University’s general awareness training program would satisfy training requirements. Dangerous goods training is based on the requirements outlined in the most current version of the IATA DGR and the ICAO Technical Instructions, and complies with Title 49, Code of Federal Regulations (49 CFR) Subpart H, Section 172.704 and the International Maritime Dangerous Goods (IMDG) Code.
