In the transport industry, specialized freight shipping is needed for delivering hazardous materials across public roads to ensure the utmost safety of the driver and the public. Abiding closely to the US Department of Transportation (DOT) standards, Trusted King Transportation Drivers University facilitates a Hazmat Training program for course takers who strive to gain the proper skills and certification in handling these dangerous materials. Since several departments strictly regulate the delivery of hazardous goods (from the pick-up point to its destination), transport and logistics companies will require their drivers for specialized freight shipping to undergo specialized courses before they are allowed to transport these goods. To help our students prepare for this greater responsibility, our instructors will cover extensive lessons that relate to hazmat handling, such as packaging procedures to minimize potential damages and cost-efficient shipping methods, among others.
The US Department of Transportation designates nine classes for hazardous materials, and these are the following:
- Flammable and Combustible Liquids
- Flammable Solids / Spontaneously Combustible and Dangerous When Wet
- Oxidizer and Organic Peroxide
- Poison (Toxic) and Poison Inhalation Hazard
- Miscellaneous, and the General Dangerous
