Hazmats include substances such as harmful chemicals, fuels, nuclear waste products, biological waste products, chemical waste products, and radiological agents.

The course topics cover the following aspects:

1. Regulations
3. Hazard Classes
4. Identifying hazardous material
5. Marking, labeling, and placarding
6. Safety Information
7. PPE/Decontamination
8. Emergency Action


The most important reason for hazardous materials and dangerous goods training is to ensure the health and safety of workers, workplaces, properties, and the environment. Each hazard comes with its own side effects and damage potential.
