HAZMAT Endorsement

Question:
If you are pulling a load that has some hazardous material, but not enough to require placards on the trailer, do you have to have a Hazmat endorsement? Also, could you cross bridges or enter tunnels that say "No HAZMAT" if you are not carrying an amount that requires placards?

Answer:


Then, you're not hauling HAZMAT...
Careful though. Some material require very little amounts (some any at all) to be RQ, and, a mixture of some materials, all less than RQ, might total up to enough to require a DANGEROUS placard.
HAZMAT is confusing and if I thought there was even a remote chance of finding myself under a load with RQ, I'd get the endorsement.
An example of how screwy the regs are:
The American Battery Council (a lobbying group) managed to obtain a variance to the regs which allows a car, fully laden with wet automotive batteries, to operate without a CORROSIVE placard. Go figure. However, if as little as one other piece of freight (even NON-HAZ) is loaded onto the car, the CORROSIVE placards must displayed. Pity the poor driver who didn't have the HAZMAT endorsement, picked up a box of battery caps for the factory (added to his load of batteries), and then had his paperwork checked at the hen house. Yikes!!!


Answer:


It may not pay more, but, it pays more often. You will be a more versatile and usable tool who may get to haul a HAZMAT load while the drivers without the endorsement remains parked.
