HazMat Transportation - Part 5 - Labeling and Placarding

HazMat Transportation - Part 5 - Labeling and Placarding

Do you recognize these? Hazard warning labels and placards communicate the risks hazardous materials pose during transportation and, like you – the general public – carriers and emergency responders from around the world recognize them immediately due to their distinctive shape and design. In this module, we’ll touch on the design specifications briefly. But the focus will be on the labeling and placarding requirements, as well as your role in labeling and placarding hazardous materials. We do want to point out that the requirements for labeling and placarding hazardous materials can be complex and they can change periodically. So always refer to the current version of the Hazardous Materials Regulations (commonly known as the HMR) in Title 49 of the Code of Federal Regulations (or 49 CFR).
