We provide on-site Haz-Mat Safety training to satisfy DOT regulation HM 126 F and our Safety and Educational Training (SET) to keep you compliant.
The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) defines hazardous materials (hazmat) as substances that pose an unreasonable risk to health, safety, and property when transported in commerce. Propane falls under this category. This means propane companies must meet DOT hazmat regulations in order to stay compliant. Companies that do not have the proper training and certifications for these standards are at greater risk for safety hazard, litigation, and regulatory fines.
Who is required to have training?
All employees that perform tasks subject to HMR are required to complete DOT hazmat training. This includes customer service representatives, delivery drivers, service technician, and employees that:
- Load, unload, or handle hazmat
- Test, recondition, repair, modify, mark, or represents packages as qualified
- Prepare hazmat for transportation
- Are responsible for safety of transporting hazmat
- Operate vehicles used to transport hazmat
- Supervise hazmat employees
When is training required? Do I have to renew training?
Any qualifying individual that is employed on a temporary, part-time, or full-time basis must be trained within 90 days of employment. Refresher training must be performed at least every three years.
