Course Objectives

The objectives of This DOT Hazmat: Function Specific - Shipping Papers course address the Federal Department of Transportation training requirements for 49 CFR 172.704(a)(2)(i).

Per 49 CFR 172.704(a)(2)(i)
Function-specific training. (i) Each hazmat employee must be provided function-specific training on the requirements of this subchapter, or exemptions or special permits issued under subchapter A of this chapter, that are specifically applicable to the functions the employee performs.
Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to:

  • Explain the purpose of shipping papers;
  • Demonstrate how to fill out a shipping paper;
  • Describe guidelines related to the emergency response number;
  • Compare shipper's certification requirements for domestic, international, and air shipments; and
  • Identify record retention requirements for shipping papers relating to hazardous materials.
Training Requirements

A complete DOT Hazardous Materials training curriculum must include:

Each Hazmat Employer must train, test and certify each Hazmat Employee within 90 days of employment. Recurrent training is required at least once every 3 years.

Initial training is required within 90 days for new employees or employees who assume new hazmat related responsibilities. Until they are trained, these employees may perform a hazardous materials employee function only under direct supervision.

DOT requires that hazmat employees be retrained and tested at least once every three years. However, the FAA, under 14 CFR, requires training for air carrier employees every two years.

Both the DOT and FAA require employers to maintain training records.

Additional Training

Depending on your specific occupation your employer may also require you to take OSHA, EPA, or other hazardous materials response training.

In addition to the training provided by an outside party, a student should receive site-specific training provided by his or her employer. This training should target the company's unique approach to hazard prevention, including the use of site-specific equipment, health and safety policies, and emergency procedures. As a rule, this company-specific training should be well documented.

If you are required to use any equipment for safety or other purposes as part of your job, additional training may be required.

The bottom line in ALL SITUATIONS is that employers are required to ensure their employees are trained adequately to do their job.
