Dangerous Goods / Hazardous Materials

Might my shipment meet the definition of a hazardous material?

That depends on multiple factors and it’s not always clear.  EHS can help you figure that out. Some factors that can play a role in classifying hazardous materials include:

  • What is in the shipment?
  • Is the shipping mode Air or Ground?
  • Does the shipment contain batteries or battery-powered devices?
  • How much material is being shipped?
  • How is the material packaged?
  • How many packages are in the shipment?
Many other factors may come into play with your shipment.  You can read more about classifying materials for shipment here.  Call EHS @ (530)898-5126 for more information about hazardous materials shipments.
