DOT Training: Congress gives The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) the authority to issue regulations for the safe transportation of hazardous materials in intrastate, interstate and foreign commerce. This authority was granted in the Hazardous Materials Transportation Act (HMTA), first adopted in 1974 and amended in November, 1990, as the Hazardous Materials Transportation Uniform Safety Act of 1990 (HMTUSA). Training to safely transport hazardous material, packaging requirements for these materials, and the regulated labels can mean the difference between a safe transport and a dangerous one.
