It is extremely important to handle hazardous materials safely. Not handling them properly can lead to serious incidents, such as chemical spills and fires, and even injury or death. To prevent these types of accidents, the U.S. Department of Transportation has developed a set of regulations addressing the handling and transporting of hazardous materials. These regulations, located in 49 CFR, parts 100 through 185, are often referred to as the HMR... the Hazardous Materials Regulations. To keep them as comprehensive as possible, the HMR are revised frequently. The most current version can always be found on the Government Printing Office website. So if you work with hazardous materials, you need to know about the current version of these "HAZMAT" regulations.
