Hazardous Materials Training for Ground DOT / 49 CFR IntroductionAnyone involved in the transportation of hazardous materials must be properly trained to do so, under the requirements described in Title 49, Code of Federal Regulations (49 CFR), Subpart H, governed by the United States Department of Transportation.
