Function Specific Training. . .. Learning how to perform specific job functions safely and efficiently Understanding the hazardous materials regulations that are to be complied with while performing specific job functions Specific skills and knowledge are needed to perform a particular job. Be sure you know what to do, and if you do not, ask for guidance on any hazmat or packaging issue..

Function Specific Training. .. **The hazardous material that RS Freight Service mostly handles are LITHIUM BATTERIES KNOW WHY LITHIUM BATTERIES ARE REGULATED IN TRANSPORTATION The risks posed by lithium cells and batteries are generally a function of: T ype S ize C hemistry Lithium cells and batteries can present both chemical (e.g., corrosive or flammable electrolytes) and electrical hazards. Unlike standard alkaline batteries, most lithium batteries manufactured today contain a flammable electrolyte and have an incredibly high energy density. They can overheat and ignite under certain conditions, such as a short circuit or improper design or assembly. Once ignited, lithium cell and battery fires can be difficult to extinguish..
Function Specific Training. .. Text Description automatically generated.
Function Specific Training. .. CAUSES OF FIRE 1.Energetic-type failures (the battery releasing stored energy rapidly creating heat and venting gases that can potentially ignite) 2. Improper storage of lithium ion batteries (sunlight exposure, extreme heat) PROPER EXTINGUISHING 1.Let the fire department fight fires. Call 9-11 2. If formally trained, you may use a standard ABC fire extinguisher or water to put out a lithium ion battery fire.
Function Specific Training. .. Safety first and handle with care. A clever truck driver knows to live by these mottos when he’s handling shipments of lithium-ion batteries. But are you aware of all the safety regulations regarding the transport of Lithium batteries? The right label- . All shipments of lithium-ion batteries must bear the label of that class . But your responsibility doesn’t end there. You also need to determine for each battery whether it is damaged, defective or simply discarded. This is crucial, because damaged batteries pose a greater risk during transportation, due to lower stability..
Function Specific Training. .. How to safely transport lithium batteries 2. The right packing- The second thing to get right is the packing of batteries. This is without a doubt the most important step of the batteries’ transport journey, as this is where you can fully eliminate the risk of dangerous reactions. The condition of the battery determines its packaging. Things to check before loading the batteries In your vehicle: T he outside surface temperature of the package does not exceed 100°C; no flame can occur outside the package; no projectiles can exit the package; the structural integrity of the package is maintained; and the package has a gas management system..
Function Specific Training. .. Packaging Requirements - § 173.185(b) Cells and batteries must be: Protected against short circuiting. This means that terminals must be protected! Placed in non-metallic inner packagings that completely enclose the cell or battery and separate them from contact with electrically conductive materials (e.g., metal) in the packaging. Packed to prevent shifting that could cause damage to the cells or batteries within the outer packaging. The outer packaging must be a UN specification packaging meeting Packing Group II performance requirements. Remember, all packaging instructions provided by the packaging manufacturer must be followed! Alternatively, instead of a UN specification package, lithium batteries with a mass of 12 kg (26.5 lbs ) or more with a strong, impact-resistant outer casing, may be packed in strong outer packaging (such as crates) or banded to pallets or other handling devices. Batteries packaged in this way require Associate Administrator approval for air transport ..
Function Specific Training. Parking. .. § 397.7 Parking. 49 CFR § 397.7 - Parking. CFR § 397.7 Parking. (a) A motor vehicle which contains Division 1.1, 1.2, or 1.3 materials must not be parked under any of the following circumstances - (1) On or within 5 feet of the traveled portion of a public street or highway ; (2) On private property (including premises of fueling or eating facility) without the knowledge and consent of the person who is in charge of the property and who is aware of the nature of the hazardous materials the vehicle contains; or (3) Within 300 feet of a bridge, tunnel, dwelling, or place where people work, congregate, or assemble, except for brief periods when the necessities of operation require the vehicle to be parked and make it impracticable to park the vehicle in any other place. (b) A motor vehicle which contains hazardous materials other than Division 1.1, 1.2, or 1.3 materials must not be parked on or within five feet of the traveled portion of public street or highway except for brief periods when the necessities of operation require the vehicle to be parked and make it impracticable to park the vehicle in any other place..
Function Specific Training. Attendance Requirements During Loading and Unloading.
Function Specific Training. Routing. .. Transportation of hazardous materials is strictly regulated in every country and state. Taking into account numerous government regulations and restrictions, hazmat transportation requires a specialized type of route optimization that is substantially different from the route optimization for regular and even commercial vehicles. Unlike the optimization for commercial vehicles, hazmat route optimization must account not only for the vehicle’s parameters but also for the specific type of hazardous materials it is transporting. Thus, for example, a light-duty truck that is transporting radioactive materials is very likely to have different directions and stops sequence than the heavy-duty tank truck that is transporting flammable liquids to the exact same locations. In addition to posing potential risks to public, environment, and driver safety, illegal transportation of hazardous materials can result in enormous fines and even criminal penalties..
Function Specific Training. .. ROUTE RESTRICTION CODES: Class 1—Explosives. Class 2—Gas. Class 3—Flammable Liquid. Class 4—Flammable Solid. Class 5—Organic. Class 6—Poison. Class 7—Radioactive. Class 8—Corrosives..

Care should be taken to keep all fire sources (matches and smoking materials in particular) away from any vehicle hauling these materials..
Function Specific Training. 4. Orientation Markings — Packages that display orientation markings such as “This Side Up” or up arrows, must be loaded according to those markings. Those packages must also remain in the correct position as indicated by the markings throughout the transportation process..

Function Specific Training. Loading and unloading requirements for specific hazard classes. Class 1 (explosives) — Before you load or unload Class 1 materials there are a few tasks you must complete: Turn the vehicle’s engine off Disable and disconnect any cargo heaters Drain cargo heater fuel tanks Inspect the cargo area for protruding nails, bolts, screws, or anything that could damage the packaging Division 1.1, 1.2, and 1.3 (explosives) must have a nonmetallic or nonferrous metal lining in the cargo area During the loading or unloading process, you must never: Use bale hooks or other metal tools Drop, throw, or roll package Transfer Division 1.1, 1.2, and 1.3 (explosives) on a public roadway except in an emergency. Note: If safety requires an emergency transfer, set out red warning reflectors, flags, or electric lanterns.
Function Specific Training. What information belongs on the shipping papers? Proper shipping name Hazard class or division Identification numbers Packing group What else should be on shipping papers? A phone number for a staffed emergency response station Quantity by: Volume Weight Volume or other unit of measure DOT-E (if you are transporting under an exemption). This is a certification of the contents being shipped. The generator must certify the load being shipped by signing the shipping papers. This is a certification of the contents being shipped.
