    Thanks for pointing out that all employees involved with shipment of hazardous materials are required to have DOT training. My uncle is trying to start a business that sells and distributes dry cleaning chemicals. I’m not sure if those count as potentially hazardous materials, but I’ll ask him about DOT training just to be sure! http://www.dotcompliancehelp.com/dot-training-group/

      Thanks for your comment, Amy. Some dry cleaning chemicals contain chlorinated solvents or other hazardous materials. If these chemicals will be transported, these regulations might apply.
