The United States Department of Transportation (DOT) and the International Air Transportation Association (IATA) regulates hazardous material shipping.
Anyone who comes in contact with hazardous materials is at risk for injury. It is essential that anyone who handles these materials has the proper training and follows all of the regulations and rules to eliminate or minimize unsafe incidents.
IATA and DOT certification is proof of the hazmat shipping courses you’ve completed and allows you to ship hazardous materials. After completing training, employees will understand safety procedures, be able to identify dangerous materials and recognize practices to reduce the chance of safety risks.
