The Types of DOT Hazard Labels
When you ship any dangerous goods, hazmat label requirements state that you must add a label that clearly states the type of items being transported. These stamps are extremely important to the safety of all parties involved, from the workers at the post office to the drivers on the road. That's why all DOT hazmat labels are designed with bright colors, unique images and easy-to-read codes.

How Do You Determine Which DOT Hazard Labels to Use?
Determining the correct hazmat shipping labels to apply to your goods is relatively easy, but a professional hazmat employee is in charge of this job. You must have a trained employee working for your business to inspect these goods and identify the proper label to use. Once they've determined the correct transportation label, they'll also need to check if additional packaging is required to meet UN-Specification standards. This means that extra zip ties or specific tape is used to completely seal the package.
Can I Use Blank Transportation Labels to Identify Hazardous Materials?
No, it is unlawful to use anything other than specified hazmat shipping labels when sending dangerous goods to anybody.
