Job Description:

In general, hazardous waste truck drivers follow safety laws and keep records of their activity to ensure that hazardous materials are appropriately tracked and accounted for at all stages of transport. Examples of hazardous materials include flammable gases, corrosive liquids, radioactive material and infectious material.

Truck drivers handling hazardous materials must have a commercial driver's license with a special license endorsement. While regulations might vary by state, the hazardous materials endorsement may require fingerprints, a criminal background check and completion of a written test. Hazardous waste truck drivers must also meet physical qualifications regarding vision and hearing.


Hazardous waste truck drivers adhere to a strict safety checklist when transporting dangerous materials. The driver ensures that materials are properly labeled and that no packages are leaking or otherwise improperly prepared for shipping. The driver must know the regulations regarding transportation of hazardous substances, including if permits are necessary anywhere along a planned route. Other responsibilities include maintaining shipping papers and emergency contact information in a designated area of the truck and properly securing cargo to prevent movement or spilling during transport.
