DOT Training

Propane falls into the category of hazardous materials (HAZMAT) defined by the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), which means propane marketers are required to meet DOT HAZMAT regulations. If your company does not have the proper training and certifications for these requirements, you are at greater risk for safety hazards, litigation, and regulatory fines.


“P3’s DOT HAZMAT training is critical to keep our marketers compliant with federal requirements.”

Clay Wilson, Manager of Propane Distribution, Greater Dickson Gas Authority, TN

Who Needs DOT Training?

The Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) requires training within 90 days of a new team member’s employment, provided they are under the direct supervision of a properly trained employee; or immediately when an existing employee changes job functions or a new hazardous material has been introduced; and recurrent training every three years. This includes delivery drivers, customer service representatives, service technicians, and employees who:

  • Load, unload, or handle HAZMAT
  • Test, recondition, repair, modify, mark, or represent packages as qualified
  • Prepare HAZMAT for transportation
  • Are responsible for safety of transporting HAZMAT
  • Operate vehicles used to transport HAZMAT
  • Supervise HAZMAT employees
