HAZMAT Safety Video & DVD Excerpt: Hazardous materials (HAZMAT) are used in business and industry every day. They heat our buildings, help us clean and maintain equipment, and are the raw materials in many manufacturing processes. However, these materials can cause trouble if they aren’t handled carefully. Leaks, spills, and explosions of hazardous materials can result in serious injuries to people, damage to property, and harm to the environment. If they get into the hands of terrorists hazardous materials can easily be transported to population centers or industrial targets with devastating results. Knowing how to handle these materials correctly, before, during, and after transport allows them to reach their destination safely, no matter how they’re being shipped. Whether its by highway, railway, pipeline, sea, or air. This transportation process involves many different people. To start things off, someone calls in an order. Warehousing pulls the product and takes it to shipping where it’s packed for transport and sent out. Once the product arrives at its destination it is unloaded and stored until it needs to be used. To insure that everyone carries out their role in the process safely the U.S. DOT has developed regulations addressing the handling and transporting of these hazardous materials. The regulations are often referred to as the HMR, the hazardous materials regulations.
