Over 4 billion tons of hazardous materials are transported in the U.S. every year. Due to their inherent risks to life, property, and the environment, the U.S. DOT established the Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR) to cover the classification, labeling, packaging, and handling of hazardous materials. They also regulate hazmat training, incident reporting, hazard communication, and security. This course describes existing regulations for the transport of hazardous materials in commerce in the U.S., including the Hazardous Materials Table (HMT).
