Shipping hazardous materials requires taking precautions and using special protective equipment for the safe transportation of these materials. Hazardous materials can be a solid, liquid, or gas that can harm living organisms and/or the environment. HAZMAT is an equivalent term, exclusively used in the United States, which denotes hazardous materials. Hazardous materials may be flammable, toxic, explosive, radioactive, or biohazardous in nature, which is why they require the implementation of safety precautions during their transportation. Most countries have specific rules and regulations to manage hazardous materials but these rules and regulations differ depending upon the use and status of the material. People who handle such materials normally wear protective clothes and also carry protective equipment.
The shipment of hazardous materials is strictly regulated by the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) and the IATA (International Air Transportation Association). The shipment of these materials may present a serious danger if an accident occurs during their shipment. Thus, it is important to follow the rules laid out by the Department of Transportation so that any potentially unsafe conditions are minimized. The U.S. Department of Transportation can impose severe penalties, which include huge fines and even imprisonment for the violation of these rules.
The most important factor involved in shipping hazardous materials is the correct identification of the hazardous materials. Hazardous materials are grouped under different categories. The different categories are:
- Flammable Gas
- Non-Flammable gas
- Poison Gas
- Flammable Liquid
- Flammable Solid
- Spontaneously Combustible
- Dangerous When Wet
- Organic Peroxide
- Infectious Substance
- Radioactive White I
- Class 9
