1 Hazardous Materials Transportation Slide Show NotesWelcome to the training session on the transportation of hazardous materials. Hazardous materials to be transported are known as “HAZMAT.”
2 Who Is a HAZMAT Employee? Load, unload, or otherwise handle hazardous materialsOperate the vehicle that will be used to transport the hazardous materialsLikely to be exposed to hazardous materials if there is an accidentSlide Show NotesYou are considered a “HAZMAT employee” and must take this safety training if you perform any of the following job tasks:Load, unload, or otherwise handle hazardous materials;Operate the vehicle that will be used to transport the hazardous materials; andAre likely to be exposed to hazardous materials if there is an accident.
3 Session Objectives You will be able to: Recognize and identify hazardous materialsUnderstand HAZMAT container markings, labels, and placardsLoad and unload hazardous materials safelyUse protective procedures and equipmentAvoid accidents with hazardous materialsRespond to an emergencyRecognize and respond to security threatsSlide Show NotesBy the end of the training session, you will be able to:Recognize and identify hazardous materials;Understand HAZMAT container markings, labels, and placards;Load and unload hazardous materials safely;Use protective procedures and equipment;Avoid accidents with hazardous materials;Respond to an emergency; andRecognize and respond to security threats.
4 Recognize Hazardous Materials Read the container labelsDOT labelsRead material safety data sheetsBecome familiar with common hazardous materialsSlide Show NotesHAZMAT employees must know how to recognize and identify hazardous materials. Follow these steps:Read the container label to determine if a material is hazardous. OSHA requires all hazardous materials to be labeled with information that includes hazardous components and health effects.DOT, or Department of Transportation, labels will also tell you if the material is considered hazardous according to DOT. Labels such as “Flammable Liquid,” “Poison,” and “Corrosive” are intended to help HAZMAT employees identify hazardous materials.The Occupational Safety and Health Administration, or OSHA, also requires manufacturers of chemicals to provide material safety data sheets, or MSDSs, for hazardous materials. Review the MSDS to determine the type of hazard.It is important that you become familiar with the hazardous materials that are commonly shipped from or received into your workplace.Discuss some of the hazardous chemicals that are shipped from or received at your workplace.Bring copies of MSDSs for some of the chemicals in your workplace.
5 Review Shipping Documents Identify the proper shipping nameIdentify the hazard classLook at the identification numberIdentify the packaging groupSlide Show NotesYou also need to review shipping documents. These documents must have the basic shipping description for the hazardous material, which includes:The proper shipping name, which can be found by looking at column 2 of the Hazardous Materials Table (49 CFR ). Look for the name of the chemical or hazardous material that you are shipping in order to find the proper shipping name. If the material is not specifically listed by its technical name, use a generic shipping name, such as “Environmentally Hazardous Substance.”The hazard class, which can be found in column 3 of the Hazardous Materials Table.The identification number, which can be found in column 4 of the Hazardous Materials Table.And finally, the packaging group, which can be found in column 5 of the Hazardous Material Table.Make sure you know how to read the shipping papers and the Hazardous Materials Table in 49 CFR for the hazardous materials your facility handles.Pass out copies of shipping papers that have examples of the shipping description for chemicals your company ships or receives.Also pass out copies of the Hazardous Materials Table located in 49 CFR , or at least the pages that pertain to the chemicals your company ships or receives.
6 Identify Hazard Classes Class 1: ExplosivesClass 2: GasesClass 3: Flammable or Combustible LiquidsClass 4: Flammable SolidsSlide Show NotesYou need to understand the hazard classes of items that you handle. For example:Hazard class 1: Explosives is divided into six divisions and includes materials such as ammunition, cartridges, detonators, black powder, fireworks, primer caps, rockets, grenades, and igniters.Hazard class 2: Gases is divided into three divisions and includes flammable gas such as propane, nonflammable gas such as nitrogen, and gas poisonous by inhalation such as chlorine.Hazard class 3: Flammable or Combustible Liquids includes gasoline, acetone, oil, paint, etc. Materials with a flashpoint <140ºF are considered flammable. Materials with a flashpoint between 140ºF and 200ºF are considered combustible.Hazard class 4: Flammable Solids includes solids such as nitrocellulose, spontaneously combustible solids such as phosphorous, and dangerous-when-wet solids such as sodium and calcium.Show examples of DOT Hazard Class labels and placards.
7 Identify Hazard Classes (cont.) Class 5: Oxidizer/ Organic PeroxideClass 6: PoisonClass 7: Radioactive MaterialClass 8: Corrosive MaterialClass 9: Miscellaneous Dangerous MaterialSlide Show NotesFurther classifications include:Hazard class 5: Oxidizer and Organic Peroxide are materials that enhance the combustion of other materials.Hazard class 6: Poison includes materials that are inhalation hazards as well as materials that should be stored away from food products. Poison materials include arsenic, cyanide, and pesticides.Hazard class 7: Radioactive Materials can cause burns and other types of injury.Hazard class 8: Corrosive Material includes acids, caustics, and other materials that destroy human tissue and eat through metals.And finally, hazard class 9: Miscellaneous Dangerous Material is hazardous material that does not fit into any of the first eight hazard classes and includes asbestos, dry ice, mixed hazardous wastes, etc.
8 Find Identification Numbers Number assigned to shipping names“UN”—international and domestic“NA”—domestic and Canadian onlyPlacardsEmergency respondersSlide Show NotesMake sure you find the identification numbers:The identification number is a specific number that is assigned to each shipping name. For example:The “UN” indicates that the material is appropriate for international as well as domestic transportation.The “NA” indicates that the material is only appropriate for domestic and Canadian transportation.Placards located on vehicles contain the identification number.Emergency responders use the identification number that is located on the placards to determine from a safe distance what type of material they are responding to.Show examples of the identification numbers on labels.
9 Identify Packaging Groups I = Great DangerII = Medium DangerIII = Minor DangerSlide Show NotesKnow how to identify packaging groups, which are assigned according to their shipping name and hazard class and indicate the degree of danger the material presents. Here are the ratings:Packaging group I indicates a great danger,Packaging group II indicates a medium danger, andPackaging group III indicates a minor danger.
10 Read Labels and Placards Read warning labels on all containersMake sure the labels match hazard class and divisionEnsure placards are properly placed on transport vehiclesPlacards must be located on all 4 sides of the vehicleSlide Show NotesAlways read warning labels and placards. They contain vital information.Warning labels and placards are carefully designed and color coded so that the hazards can be quickly recognized. Required warning labels can be found in column 6 of the Hazardous Materials Table in 49 CFRWarning labels include both the hazard class and the division of the hazard.Placards are used to alert the public to the potential dangers of hazardous materials transported by road, rail, water, or air. Placards are used to guide emergency personnel in their actions during a HAZMAT incident. Placards correspond to the warning labels that are placed on each individual container.Placards must be located on all four sides of the transportation vehicle.Make sure you’re familiar with the labels and placards that appear on containers and vehicles handled in your facility.Bring examples of different labels and placards that are on containers and vehicles used to transport hazardous materials that are either shipped or received by your organization.
11 UN Approved Packages Packages must pass leakage and stability tests Must be marked with “UN” nomenclatureCheck the DOT hazardous materials tableCheck to ensure there is no damageSlide Show NotesHere’s what you need to know about UN-approved packages:Packages must meet certain requirements before they are permitted to carry hazardous materials. Tests include a drop test, stacking test, vibration test, leakproof test, and a hydrostatic pressure test.Once the package passes the appropriate tests, it is marked or embossed with the UN packaging nomenclature, which will start with the letters UN and then have various other numbers depending on the type of package. For example, a steel drum with a non-removable head designed for packaging groups II and III and made in the United States in 2001 would have the following nomenclature: UN1A1/Y1.4/150/01USA.Column 8 of the Hazardous Materials Table refers to different sections of 49 CFR 173 depending on the type of hazardous material that is being shipped. Refer to the appropriate section in order to determine what type of package is appropriate for shipping your hazardous material.Packages cannot be damaged. They cannot have dents, holes, bulges, or other types of damage.Make sure you can recognize UN-approved packages, such as drums, boxes, or bottles.Show examples of UN-approved packages such as drums, boxes, or bottles.
12 Identifying Hazards and Labels—Any Questions? Any questions about hazardous materials identification?Reading labels, markings, or placards?Slide Show NotesNow it’s time to ask yourself if you understand the information presented so far.Do you understand hazardous materials identification?Do you understand how to read labels, markings, or placards?It is important for your safety that you understand how read hazardous materials information to determine the hazards you face.
13 Loading or Unloading Trucks Check the safety guide before loading or unloading beginsRemove ignition keys prior to loading/unloadingDon’t overfill or overload tanksHandle cylinders and packages carefullySlide Show NotesHere’s what to do when loading or unloading HAZMAT cargo from trucks or transferring liquids in tank trucks:Check the safety guide before you begin loading or unloading;Remove the ignition keys prior to loading/unloading to avoid “pull-away” incidents;Be careful not to overfill or overload tanks; andBe careful when handling cylinders and packages of hazardous materials.Modify this slide or add slides to describe specific safe loading and unloading procedures at your facility.
14 Loading or Unloading Trucks (cont.) Handle empty drums as cautiously as full drumsDo not overload closed cargo spaces; allow air to circulateClose all access flanges and valves before moving and allow adequate relaxation timeSlide Show NotesAlso, take these precautions when loading or unloading HAZMAT cargo from trucks or transferring liquids in tank trucks:Handle empty drums with the same caution as full drums.Do not overload closed cargo spaces; allow air to circulate.Close all access flanges and valves before moving and allow adequate relaxation time.Make sure you follow these and your facility’s specific loading and unloading procedures.Modify this slide or add slides to describe specific safe loading and unloading procedures at your facility.
15 Loading and Unloading a Tank Truck or Railcar Inspect the vehicleWear appropriate PPEFollow specific checklistStay in the areaKnow emergency response proceduresFollow procedures after loading/unloadingSlide Show NotesTake these precautions when unloading or loading a railcar or tank truck:Inspect the vehicle to make sure it is safe before you begin. Check that valves are closed. Make sure there are no visible leaks or signs of leaks. Check that the brakes are applied, wheels are chocked, and caution signs are posted.Wear personal protective equipment, or PPE, that is appropriate for the type of chemical you are handling.Follow the exact unloading or loading sequence as described in your company’s procedures.Stay in the area during the loading or unloading process. Do not leave without a qualified replacement. Continually check the tank truck or railcar, hoses, fittings, etc., for any signs of leaks.Know how to shut down the loading or unloading process in an emergency. Your system may have engineered valves or other emergency shut-down systems. Tank trucks have emergency shut-downs on both the rear and the front of the truck.When the loading or unloading process is complete, there are a number of tasks to do, including: clearing the hose or line of any chemicals, removing the hose, shutting valves, securing covers, removing signs and wheel chocks, checking placards, etc.Follow your facility’s loading and unloading checklists.Bring examples of your company’s loading or unloading checklists.
16 Handle Drums and Totes Safely Inspect containers for damageCheck labels and markingsRemove containers carefullyKnow emergency proceduresPlace containers in storage areaSlide Show NotesHere’s how to handle drums and totes safely:Inspect the drums or totes for any signs of damage, spills, leaks, etc., before unloading them from a truck or before loading them into a truck.Make sure the containers are properly labeled and have the appropriate markings, including shipping name, address, etc.Carefully remove containers from trucks or load containers into trucks using forklifts, drum attachments for the forklift, drum dollies, or whatever method is used in your workplace.Know what to do in an emergency in case a drum, tote, or other small container of hazardous material ruptures or becomes damaged during the unloading process.When unloading, place the container in its proper storage area right away. Do not leave hazardous materials on the loading/unloading dock.
17 Operate a Forklift Safely Authorized operators onlyQuickly report accidentsAlways wear seat beltsNo person under the forksOperate controls only from driver’s seatNever block exits or emergency equipmentSlide Show NotesFor those of you who are certified to operate a forklift, this is a refresher for operating safely. These procedures are outlined in your copy of the Powered Industrial Truck Program.Only authorized operators can use a forklift;Report all forklift-related accidents;Always wear the seat belt;Standing under elevated forks may be deadly if the hydraulic system fails;Only operate the forklift from the driver’s seat; andDon’t block exits or emergency equipment with a forklift.Make sure you know and follow the operating rules for forklifts used in your facility.The information on this slide is generic and may not apply to your facility. Feel free to change the bullet points so that they coincide with the general operating rules of your company.
18 Loading and Unloading With a Forklift Never over-load the forkliftCheck the weight of the loadLocate the center of gravityInspect the loadRestack unstable loadsTow from the rear towing pinSlide Show NotesFollow these precautions when loading and unloading a forklift:Never attempt to lift or carry a load beyond the rated capacity on the nameplate.Check the weight of the load. Placing a weight on the back of a forklift to increase load capacity is extremely dangerous. Obviously, if this happens, the forklift is trying to lift a load over its capacity. Also, adding weight to the back of the lift truck does not increase the capacity of the mast, hydraulic system, chains, or tilt cylinders.Locate the load’s center of gravity.Inspect the load for stability, projections, and damaged pallets before lifting.Restack unstable loads, and secure the load with straps, ropes, or other means of containment if necessary to ensure stability. With wide loads, spread the forks apart as far as possible so that the load will fall inward in case it becomes unstable.Never drill a hole in the forks to use as a way of towing something or as a place to put a chain hook when hoisting. This ruins the integrity of the forks. Forklifts are equipped with a tow bar in the back for towing. Safe attachments can be purchased for use when hoisting.
19 Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Always wear the appropriate personal protectionProtect eye and faceUse glovesRespiratory protectionProtective clothing and bootsSlide Show NotesProtect yourself from the hazards of the materials that you load or unload.Review MSDSs, labels, and workplace safe work practices to determine what PPE should be worn. Then wear it! For example:Most workplaces require the use of eye protection such as safety glasses when loading and unloading any type of material, whether drums or railcars. A face shield may be required when loading/unloading bulk materials from a tank truck or railcar.Gloves are also required for almost every loading/unloading operation from drums to railcars. Be sure to wear gloves that are appropriate for the chemical you will be handling.Respiratory protection may also be required for loading/unloading chemicals that have a high inhalation hazard.Protective clothing and boots should also be worn when handling hazardous materials that present severe skin hazards and when loading/unloading bulk chemicals from railcars or tank trucks.Make sure you wear the appropriate PPE for the materials you handle in your facility.Bring examples of PPE that is worn in your workplace when loading or unloading chemicals.Modify this slide to describe the specific PPE required at your facility.
20 Emergency Response to a Spill or Leak Stop the material handling processEvacuate the areaAlert othersControl and clean up only if authorized and trainedSlide Show NotesHere’s what you need to know about emergency response to a spill or leak:HAZMAT employees must know how to stop the unloading or loading process. Railcars and tank trucks have special ways to shut their internal valves that will stop the flow of material when unloading. The loading and unloading process at your workplace may have emergency valves that can be used to shut down the process. Containers such as drums can be turned such that the hole is facing up and no more material leaks out.Evacuate the immediate area, especially if the material is a serious health hazard.Alert others by sounding alarms, yelling, or using a paging system. This alarm should also call for the trained emergency response team.Respond to the spill or release with spill control and clean-up equipment only if you are authorized and a trained member of the spill response team. Do not attempt to respond to a spill by yourself even if you’re part of the spill response team—wait for the rest of your team.Know and follow your facility’s emergency response procedures.Discuss emergency procedures that are specific to your workplace.
21 Emergency Contacts Fire department Police department Ambulance Medical clinicHospitalSlide Show NotesHere are the phone numbers that should be readily available in all areas of the company:Fire departmentPolice departmentAmbulanceMedical clinicHospitalMake sure you know where to find these numbers quickly in case of emergency. Also, know and follow your facility’s emergency notification procedures.Tell trainees where they can find emergency notification numbers and describe the procedures for notification.
22 Rescue and Medical Treatment Leave rescue work to trained professionalsLet designated first-aid workers perform first aidFollow medical emergency proceduresSlide Show NotesHere are important basic procedures for rescue and medical treatment:If a worker is trapped or badly injured, leave the rescue work to trained and certified first responders.If you or a co-worker are injured, provide medical help for which you are trained. Whenever possible, alert designated first-aid providers or medical personnel to your needs or the needs of co-workers.Follow the company’s written medical emergency procedures.Modify this slide to describe your company’s medical emergencies procedures.
23 Extinguishing Equipment Portable extinguisherFire hoseFire suppression systemsSlide Show NotesHere are the three primary categories of fire extinguishing equipment:Portable extinguisherFire hoseFire suppression systemsMake sure you know which fire extinguishing equipment is used in your facility and where it is located.Modify this slide to describe your company’s firefighting procedures. Describe the firefighting equipment used at your facility, if applicable. Show the locations of fire extinguishers and fire hoses (if possible, bring a map showing their locations).
24 Extinguisher Types A—For combustibles such as trash, wood, or paper B—For flammable liquids or gasesC—For electrical firesD—For combustible metals such as magnesiumSlide Show Notes.Here are the four types of extinguishers based on the kinds of fires they extinguish:“A” extinguishers, used for combustibles such as trash, wood, or paper, must be located so that the travel distance for employees to the extinguisher is 75 feet or less.“B” extinguishers, used for flammable liquids or gases, must be located so that the travel distance for employees to the extinguisher is 50 feet or less.“C” extinguishers, used for electrical fires, are grouped with either an “A” or “B” class extinguisher, so its location is based on the pattern required by the extinguisher class it is grouped in.“D” extinguishers, required in areas where combustible metal powders, shavings, or similarly sized products are generated at least once every 2 weeks, must be located so that the travel distance for employees to the extinguisher is 75 feet or less.Check OSHA regulation 29 CFR for the distances fire extinguishers must be located from employees. Also, make sure you know if your local fire department has different requirements.OSHA requires fire extinguishers to be maintained within certain distances from every point within a facility (29 CFR ). However, your local fire department may have different requirements.
25 Extinguisher Use Pull the pin Aim at the base of the fire Squeeze the triggerSweep back and forthSlide Show NotesThese four steps for using fire extinguishers are easy to remember by thinking about the word PASS:Pull the pin.Aim at the base of the fire.Squeeze the trigger.Sweep back and forth.Most extinguishers are emptied in less than one minute, so aim carefully.Make sure you know how to operate the extinguishers used in your facility.Bring an extinguisher to show the class. Let the employees hold the extinguisher if they wish. Ask them if they have ever had to use an extinguisher before.
26 HAZMAT Safety and Emergencies—Questions? Any questions about loading, unloading, or handling hazardous materials?Questions about how to respond to emergencies?Questions about using a fire extinguisher?Slide Show NotesNow it’s time to ask yourself if you understand the information presented in this section.Do you understand how to load, unload, and handle hazardous materials?Do you know how to respond to emergencies?Do you understand how to use a fire extinguisher?It’s important for your safety that you know how to handle hazardous materials and how to respond to emergencies, including fires.
27 Security Plan Different for every facility Includes risk assessment and preventive measuresDescribes how applicant information is confirmedAddresses unauthorized access and handlingAddresses en route risksSlide Show NotesHere’s what you need to know about HAZMAT transportation security plans:The transportation security plan will be different for every company and every facility within a company. The plan will vary depending on the level of threat, the type and amount of hazardous materials, and potential security risks at each facility or location.The plan must include an assessment of possible transportation security risks for shipments of hazardous materials and measures that will be taken to address the risks that were found.The security plan will describe how your company confirms information provided by job applicants that are hired for positions that involve access to and handling of the hazardous materials.The plan will discuss measures taken to prevent unauthorized persons from gaining access to the hazardous materials.Finally, the security plan will also describe measures taken to address potential security risks of shipments of hazardous materials while they are en route to their destination, including shipments that are stored incidental to movement.Make sure you understand and follow your facility’s transportation security plan, if the facility has one.Bring copies of your company’s transportation security plan, if appropriate.Delete this slide if your facility is not required to have a security plan.
28 Potential Security Risks List of hazardous materialsQuantity stored or processedLocation considerationsModes of transportationSlide Show NotesHere’s how to determine potential security risks:Start by making a list of hazardous materials that you ship or receive that are subject to the security plan requirements. Make the list comprehensive and include: radioactive materials, explosive materials, materials that are poisonous by inhalation, and other hazardous materials that require placarding. The more hazardous the material, the greater the security risk. Put the most hazardous materials at the top of your list.Consider the quantity of each material that you store at your facility as well as how much you ship or receive at a time. The greater the quantity, the greater the security risk. Chemicals in large bulk quantities require extra security precautions.Consider what your chemical shipping and receiving area is like. Your facility may be at a higher security risk if located close to dense populations of people, water supplies, power stations, or sensitive environmental areas.Finally, consider the mode of transportation. Shipping and receiving bulk quantities by railcar is probably a greater risk than shipping and receiving smaller quantities by tanker trucks.Discuss potential security risks at your workplace.
29 Address En Route Risks Select carriers carefully Assess loading/ unloading areasEvaluate dispatch methodsAssess security of the destinationSlide Show NotesHere’s how to address en route risks:En route security risks should be addressed both by the carrier or transporter as well as the shipper. Select carriers that have security plans developed and implemented, understand the hazards of the materials being shipped, have secure storage areas, and secure delivery routes.Assess loading and unloading areas and procedures for security risks including emergency shutdown, loading and unloading equipment, and access by unauthorized personnel.Assess your methods of dispatching loads. Can unauthorized persons find out when your loads of hazardous materials will be picked up, what route they are taking, or where they are going?Finally, assess the security of the destination of your hazardous materials. If they are being shipped to another facility with a security plan, your load will probably be safe. However, if the load is going to an unsecured area or location, assess the security risks associated with shipping hazardous materials to that destination.
30 Secure Hazardous Material Lock storage areasInventory hazardous materialsInspect storage areasLook out for unusual chemical purchasesVerify driver informationSlide Show NotesTake these steps to secure hazardous materials that are stored at your facility:Keep access to storage areas locked.Conduct frequent and accurate inventories. A good inventory will help you determine if materials are being stolen.Conduct regular inspections of chemical storage areas. Check doors, fences, gates, etc., to ensure the area is properly secured. Inspect pipes, tanks, drums, and other containers for any signs of damage. Look for anything that is unusual or out of the ordinary.Look out for unusual chemical purchases from customers that are larger than normal quantities or from unknown customers. Also, keep an eye out for odd behavior from customers, truck drivers, or your own employees.Finally, check driver identification. Write the driver’s license number on the shipping paperwork or bill of lading and have the driver print and sign his or her name. Verify that the driver has the proper hazardous materials endorsement.Make sure you know and follow your facility’s security procedures in hazardous material storage areas.Discuss the security of your hazardous material storage areas.
31 Report Suspicious Personnel or Activities Report suspicious activity:Persons near chemical tanksLoitering by loading docksWalking along security fenceUnusual vehicles parked outside facilitySlide Show NotesIdentify and report suspicious personnel or activities in the work area—especially when near hazardous chemicals. Here’s what to be aware of:A person loitering by chemical tanks, especially when not authorized, is suspicious activity and must be reported.Report anyone loitering by loading docks where chemical containers are handled.Someone walking along the outside of the security fence should be considered suspicious. The person may be looking for potential access points to the facility.Finally, unusual vehicles parked outside your facility could indicate some type of danger, such as someone waiting for a hazardous material shipment to leave your facility so the truck can be hijacked.
32 Responding to Security Threats Do not approach suspicious personsCall policeWarn othersLock doors and gatesEvacuate areaSlide Show NotesWhen you recognize a security threat, such as suspicious persons or a suspicious object or package near hazardous materials, respond with these steps:Do not approach suspicious persons or objects;Call facility security or the police;Warn other employees in the area of the suspicious behavior;Secure the area by locking doors and gates; andEvacuate the area or shelter-in-place as determined in your company’s emergency response plan.Make sure you know and follow your facility’s procedures for responding to security threats.Discuss how employees are to respond to security threats at your workplace.
33 Your Role in Security Keep doors locked Don’t lend out keys Require proper identificationCheck unknown personnelSlide Show NotesEvery employee plays a key role in the physical security of the workplace. Do your part and take these precautions:Keep doors locked. This includes doors that lead outside as well as internal security doors that prevent access to areas from public hallways or lobbies.Do not let others borrow keys or access cards to the building or to your work area. Do not give out access codes or other access information.Do not let anyone enter the building without proper identification. Unauthorized personnel may try to enter a building “on your coattails” by following you into a door after you have used your key or access card to open a door. They may thank you for holding the door open so they did not have to get out their key. Before letting this person in, require them to show identification or their key to prove they are authorized to be in the building.Finally, check the identification of unknown personnel in your work area. Make sure they are supposed to be there.
34 Security—Any Questions? Are there any questions about security risks or procedures?Slide Show NotesNow it’s time to ask yourself if you understand the information presented so far. Do you understand security risks and procedures for responding to them? It’s important for your safety that you know how to recognize and respond to security risks and threats.
35 Key Points to Remember Read the shipping descriptions Read and follow label and placard warningsFollow all safe HAZMAT handling procedures—they could save your lifeWear proper PPE to avoid injuryFollow security procedures—report suspicious people or activities immediatelySlide Show NotesHere are the key points to remember about handling HAZMAT safely:Read the shipping descriptions;Read and follow label and placard warnings;Follow all safe HAZMAT handling procedures—they could save your life;Wear proper PPE to avoid injury; andFollow security procedures—report suspicious people or activities immediately.This concludes this training session.Give the quiz, if appropriate.
