Which of these is true about hauling hazardous materials?

A Containers should be marked with four-inch diamond-shaped hazard labels.

The shipper uses a shipping paper and diamond-shaped hazard labels to warn dockworkers and drivers of the risk. Shipping orders, bills of lading, and manifests are all examples of shipping papers. The shipping paper describes the hazardous materials being transported. Shippers put diamond-shaped hazard warning labels on most hazardous materials packages to inform others of the hazard. If the diamond label will not fit on the container, shippers put the label on a tag. For example, compressed gas cylinders that will not hold a label will have tags or decals.
