As part of a comprehensive strategy to protect the United States from future terrorist attacks, the Department of Transportation requires all companies that transport or cause the transportation of hazardous materials to provide "Security Awareness Training" to their "HAZMAT Employees." This includes everyone involved in the transportation of hazardous materials, from the manufacturing and testing of HAZMAT containers to the unloading of the materials at their final destination. This training program is designed to make employees aware of the security risks associated with handling and transporting hazardous materials, acquaint them with methods that can be used to enhance transportation security, and help them to recognize and respond to possible security threats.
