Hazardous Materials Classification

There are nine hazardous material classifications that are consistent across all government agencies who regulate the transportation of dangerous goods for both national and international levels.

Our Specialty Hazardous Materials Classifications

Mayken™ is trained, qualified, certified, and experienced in performing transportation or environmental cleanup services related to these six classifications:

Hazardous Materials Classification 3

  • Flammable liquids and combustible liquids (fuel, methanol, solvents, etc.)

These are most commonly found at work sites or accident sites.

Hazardous Materials Classification 4

  • Flammable solids (spills/contamination)
  • Spontaneously combustible materials
  • Dangerous when wet materials
  • Water-reactive substances

Again, these types of cleanups tend to involve work site related spills and/or accident scenes that require cleaning.

Hazardous Materials Classification 5

  • Oxidizing substances and organic peroxides (fertilizers)

These types of sites that require cleaning tend to be industrial or farming locations.

Hazardous Materials Classification 6

  • Toxic substances and infectious substances (crime and trauma)
  • Biohazard

Biohazard cleanup of substances found at crime and/or trauma and health related incidents.

Hazardous Materials Classification 8

  • Corrosive substances

Typically found in industrial cleanup situations.

Hazardous Materials Classification 9

  • Miscellaneous hazardous materials/products, substances, or organisms
