Hazardous Materials Training

To ensure your hazardous goods are shipped safely and properly, all BassTech logistics associates are certified in hazardous materials transportation and undergo the required recertification every three years. Our staff is certified in DOT 49 CFR, IMDG and IATA dangerous goods regulations.

Hazmat transportation training covers a wide range of topics, all of which are crucial to the proper legal handling and storage of dangerous goods. Employees learn how to properly classify, document, ship and store hazardous materials. The comprehensive certification process includes education on procedures for ground, rail and water shipments so we can safely choose the best method to ship your order. Staff members also learn about proper closure methods, placarding, labeling and shipping papers. When it comes to safety, our people are well-versed in emergency response protocols. Other topics include:

  • Packaging standards and testing
  • Marking and labeling
  • Hazard class definitions
  • Security risks and threats
  • Conditions of transport
