What Fines/Penalties Can Result From Not Following Hazmat Rules?
The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) and Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) conduct unannounced inspections regarding the activities of transporters of hazardous materials.
If the inspection finds that your business does not meet the proper requirements for hazmat training, your business may be subject to civil and/or criminal penalties.
Penalties Per Violation 49 CFR §107.329
Proper hazardous materials training helps ensure compliance with the regulations for transporting hazmat to avoid these civil penalties, and the safety of hazmat employees and everyone involved throughout packaging and transportation.
All courses provided by DB Schenker Online Training meet regulatory guidelines for training outlined in 49 CFR §172.704.
