J. J. Keller & Associates recently introduced “Hazmat Drivers: Training for Safe Transport,” a training program designed to help transport companies comply with the hazardous materials general awareness training requirements under 49 CFR Section 172.704.
The program is anchored by a closed-caption video that covers important compliance topics, including hazmat classification, the Hazardous Materials Table, packing groups, shipping papers, labels, placards, loading, unloading and segregation, driving and parking rules, emergency response information, transportation safety and security, and more. The video features graphics to help keep drivers’ attention and a quiz that reinforces key information.
The program also features a hazmat driver training packet that includes a driver handbook, a label chart, a hazmat placard chart, a load and segregation chart, and a hazmat marking chart. One packet is included with the program; additional packets are available separately.
Program components also include an instructor’s guide that provides background information, training tips and a training log to track participation; an awareness poster that reinforces key concepts; a variety of reference charts; and a sheet of 10 wallet cards to document training. A CD-ROM contains transparency masters, quizzes with answer keys, clip art, awareness posters and a training log. These tools can be used as-is or customized. Text also can be transferred into PowerPoint presentations.
The training program is available on DVD or VHS. The DVD format includes a special “Message for Management,” informative commentary from industry professionals, an interactive quiz with correct/incorrect remediation, and a review of key hazmat-transportation principles. The DVD version also includes menu and chapter selections that allow for navigation and random access of topics. Plus, the DVD can be used with a TV/DVD player for group training or a computer with DVD capability for individual training.
