Transport of Dangerous Goods Awareness Introduction Course

Posted on: November 10, 2014

Background

The Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods (TDG) are developed by the United Nations Committee of Experts on the Transport of Dangerous Goods to ensure that the risks to people, property and the environment are minimized when transporting hazardous materials.

Some of the key objectives of the recommendations on TDG are the harmonization of hazard awareness, reduction in risk when transporting by appropriate packaging/containment, and better communication through marking, labeling and documentation, across all modes of transport.

It is mandatory under UK law for personnel involved in a company transporting Dangerous Goods (DG) to be appropriately trained before commencing work.  This includes personnel responsible for the classification, packing, marking/labeling, documentation, loading and unloading of DG.  These training requirements extend across all modes of transportation, with air DG transportation having the strictest requirements.

Incorrect undertaking of any process involved in DG transportation could have implications including shipment delays, safety issues, financial penalties, and in some cases legal action.

Safeware Quasar’s Dangerous Goods Training Awareness Course will provide delegates with the essential knowledge necessary to satisfy the legal requirement for a basic level of training.
