Hazardous materials identification: Hazardous material placards and Labels Placards are used to represent the hazard classes of materials contained within motor vehicles, train cars, and freight containers. Labels communicate the same hazards for smaller containers and packages. Hazard communication forms the backbone of emergency response, and response begins with communication! The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) requires proper placards and labels to alert the public of the presence of hazardous materials.
