Dangerous goods are products containing solids, liquids or gases that can harm people, other living organisms, property, or the environment which are subject to regulation by international law. In the United States dangerous goods are more commonly known as hazardous materials, or HazMat.
Federal and International training requirements state that “Initial and recurrent dangerous goods training programs must be established and maintained by, or on behalf of regular shippers, shippers’ agents and agencies which perform on behalf of the operator the act of receiving, loading, unloading, transferring or other processing of cargo.” Further, “It is the duty of each person who offers hazardous material for transportation to instruct each of his officers, agents and employees having any responsibility for preparing hazardous materials for shipment as to applicable regulations.”
Traeger employees are certified to handle dangerous goods. Every employee has training in HazMat and must pass a test to annually which demonstrates their knowledge and understanding.
