Hazardous Materials Handling
Breaks and Lunches are not optional !!!
Driver's Daily Logs (DDL)
- Must be updated at all breaks and lunches at minimum
- Must meet all four criteria to be considered "Local"
- Shift must be less than 12 hours (11:45 and
- Less than 100 air miles from the shop
- Must begin and end at the terminal
- Entire day is spent servicing one city or area
- A short pre-trip inspection should be completed before the driver leaves for the day. Any issues are be noted on the DDL. Issues fixed immediately (i.e. bulbs) should still be noted and copies of the DDL placed in the vehicle file
- Additional items found throughout the day are to be added as they are discovered
- A copy of the DDL with the discrepancy is to be kept in the vehicle in the Driver's Book until the issue is repaired, at which time the copy goes into the vehicle file along with a copy of the repair invoice
DDL Example #1
6:30am - 7:00am - At shop for meeting, pre-trip inspection, and verifying load sheet
7:00am - 7:30am - Driving to Fremont, CA
7:30am - 12:00pm - Service and Deliveries in Fremont, CA
12:00pm - 1:30pm - Driving to Monterey, CA
1:30pm - 2:00pm - Service Call
2:00pm - 3:15pm - Driving back to shop
3:15pm - 4:00pm - End of day paperwork and load truck
DDL Example #2
6:00am - 6:30am - At shop for meeting, pre-trip inspection, and verifying load sheet
6:30am - 7:00am - Driving to Los Angeles, CA
7:00am - 5:15pm - Service and Deliveries in Los Angeles, CA
5:15pm - 5:45pm - Driving back to shop
5:45pm - 6:15pm - End of day paperwork and load truck
- Managers are required to check DDLs daily to ensure accuracy and to see that they are filled out completely.
- When completing an in-field inspection, managers should ensure that DDLs have been updated through the most recent break or lunch at a minimum. Managers can set more stringent requirements for updating DDLs
- All noted issues most be handled in a timely manner. A corrective action should be noted as soon as a problem is found
Load Sheets and the DOT
- 1001 pounds and above of hazardous materials
- Placards should be removed or turned over once load is under 900 pounds
- All four sides of the vehicle need to be placarded
- Make sure to check during pre-trip inspections that placards are safely buckled in their correct position, whether blank or displaying the placard
DOT Load Sheet
DOT Load Sheet
- Also referred to as manifests or shipping paperwork
- Required for every vehicle, regardless of size
- All products are listed separately based on packaging
- 1-Gallon containers and corrosive Ultra products (Ultra D-Grease Supreme) are inventoried in case lots. Only the 1-Gallon case lots can be broken and sold as individual products
- All other products, Mach, 2.5 and 5-Gallon containers, are listed as individual containers and sold as such on invoices
It is the driver's responsibility to ensure accuracy
not only before leaving but while delivering and servicing throughout the day
- All loads over 1001 pounds must be approved by a manager, with some branches requiring approval over lower amounts.
- Anyone with a load sheet must understand the Materials of Trade Exemption
Auto-Chlor MOT Practices
- One-gallon containers of Auto-Chlor products carried as MOT on a regulated vehicle will be listed on a load sheet. For load sheet purposes partially full gallons of Auto-Chlor products are treated as full containers (excludes spray bottles).
- Chemicals drawn from your vehicle inventory and used as MOT during the course of the day must be documented. Do so by entering an appropriate service comment on the customer invoice, for example: “Used .25 gallon Scale Kleen to descale dishwasher”.
- Auto-Chlor products carried as MOT on a non-regulated vehicle do not need to be listed on a load sheet as long as the maximum quantities (discussed in part IV) are not exceeded. In other words, if carefully managed, all products carried on a non-regulated vehicle can be treated as MOT, eliminating the need for a load sheet.
- Each Auto-Chlor vehicle may carry one ‘tote’ designated for transporting MOT. The designated MOT ‘tote’ should be marked with indelible marker: “Materials of Trade (MOT)” and placed in a convenient location of your vehicle cargo area and secured against movement.
- Spray bottles containing Auto-Chlor products intended for use as MOT will be tightly closed, properly labeled, and placed within the MOT designated tote, or in a compartment of a tool tote or tool bag that is itself secured against movement. Spray bottles do not need to be entered on load sheets.
- Alternately, your branch or region may determine that MOT will be treated in the same fashion as non-MOT cargo and subject to standard rules and regulations. For example; you may determine that Scale Kleen used as MOT will be carried in Scale Kleen labeled ‘totes’ rather than a MOT tote, and subject to the provisions of the SP-6614.
Up to $10,000 Fines!!
Name That Violation!!
In the event your are inspected by CHP or other authority you should:
- Cooperate fully and provide all information requested.
- Do not volunteer any information. Reply to their
questions respectfully and do not elaborate unless asked
- Give them the driver’s book and point out load sheet.
- Open up the truck if asked and allow them to inspect.
- Answer all questions to the best of your ability. "I don't
know, let me find out" is a perfectly acceptable answer.
- Use reference materials (i.e. spill clean up sheet, MOT trainer)
- Call your manager and notify corporate as soon as possible
- Ensure any issues found are resolved as soon as you return to the branch.
- Make sure the original copy is sent to corporate for logging.
Transporting more than 1001lbs of hazardous materials
a valid commercial driver’s license with hazmat endorsement is against company policy. This can also lead to disciplinary action. Drivers can be held personally responsible for any fines imposed by Highway Patrol, DOT, or other enforcement agencies.
DOT Record Keeping
- DOT Load Sheets and Driver Daily Logs are kept together in the branch for two years and one period.
- Vehicle files are created for every vehicle once acquired, regardless of size or purpose, i.e. Sprinter, Camry, Tundra, etc. All records or maintenance are kept for the life of the vehicle.
- Records of issues noted on a DDL with repairs are also kept in the vehicle files. During the event of a DOT inspection at a branch, these provide them with proof that our required pre-trip inspections are being done.
- Driver Qualification Files (DQF) are created for every employee that drives a route/install vehicle. Managers can determine whether salespeople and shop/rebuild employees need one as well. All training records, whether related to DOT or otherwise, are kept throughout employment and for 5 years beyond. If no DQF is created, these are to be kept in a personnel or training file.
In-Field Truck Inspections
- Scan a copy to corporate and place the original
into the driver's DQF.
- Depending on the size of the branch, either 8, 4, or 1 of
these are to be turned in every period.
This is our primary form of ongoing training.
used to keep us out of trouble in the event we are
stopped by the DOT.
- Do not view these as "getting you in trouble". They
are to be viewed as "keeping you out of trouble".
Long Form Truck Inspections
- Scan a copy to corporate and place the original
into the vehicle file.
- Depending on the size of the branch, either 1 or 2 of
these are to be turned in every period.
This form is a complete audit of the truck. This is
completed to ensure that all safety needs for the
vehicle are at hand, as well as updated copies of
exemptions and licenses. All SDS sheets should be
on hand for any chemical you may carry.

updated. That includes licenses, SDS, and
exemptions. The truck is also your responsibility to
maintain. If you have not completed one of these on
your truck, volunteer for one this period!!

Vehicle Maintenance Program
Foam Surround Safety Glasses are the most basic form of protection for Auto-Chlor System. These are mandatory whenever there is a possibility you will come into contact with chemicals.
For those who wear prescription glasses, we have set up a program to get a free pair as long as you have a valid prescription (within 6 months). The only other option would be an "Over-the-Glasses" style of foam surround glasses.
PPE Requirements for pouring non-corrosive chemicals
PPE Requirements for pouring corrosive chemicals

Branch Managers conduct safety walks every period.
Separate and more thorough Quarterly Inspections are conducted Regional Management and the Safety and Compliance Manager will conduct one per branch every year at a minimum.
Day 20 Safety Meetings are the best way to keep training up to date for our employees. With constantly changing regulations, we have to make sure you all have the newest information available to you. It is important that you not only learn the content of our trainers but
