Full Course Overview

The United Nations Committee of Experts on the Transport of Dangerous Goods developed recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods (TDG) 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, risk reduction during transport with appropriate packaging/containment, and better communication through marking, labeling and documentation. These recommendations have been implemented through the European Agreement for the international carriage of dangerous goods by road – more commonly known as ADR.

For companies that ship dangerous goods by road in Europe, there is a legal requirement for all personnel involved in activities related to the movement of dangerous goods to be appropriately trained and aware of the general requirements in ADR.

The ADR Transport of Dangerous Goods Awareness Training Course provides you with the essential knowledge required to satisfy the legal requirement for a basic level of dangerous goods training. The course provides comprehensive information on the following key areas:

  • Hazard classification
  • Packaging of dangerous goods
  • Marking and labelling
  • Transport documentation requirements
  • Carriage provisions and vehicle requirements
  • Exemptions including limited and excepted quantity

Please Note: This course does not cover – in detail – issues relating to materials of Class 1 (Explosives), Class 2 (Gases) (although the course material will introduce aerosols), Division 6.2 (Infectious), and Class 7 (Radioactive). The course also does not cover carriage in tanks, or the regulations and requirements for transportation of DG by air/IATA.
