National Summary

This topic contains information about the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), which consists of several divisions representing the various transportation modes.

Of particular importance for workplace safety are the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Security Administration (PHMSA), which regulates the transportation of hazardous materials, and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), which is responsible for regulating commercial motor carriers and enforcing safety standards for these operations. In several areas, the DOT interacts with OSHA and other regulatory agencies such as the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to coordinate standards and enforcement procedures.
