If given the task of packaging or inspecting and accepting hazardous materials for transportation, could you do so in compliance with HMR (Hazardous Materials Regulations) packaging requirements? Your employer wants to make sure you can, since the DOT and its designated agencies regulate the packaging and transportation of hazardous materials. These agencies also have the authority to inspect hazardous materials packages and fine or penalize you as well as your employer for any HMR violations. Module 3 covers general packaging requirements.
