ADR Transport of Dangerous Goods Awareness Introduction [ Classroom ]

ADR 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 minimised 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 across all modes of transport including modes used by IATA.

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

A mistake made during any process involved in DG transportation could have implications including shipment delays, safety issues, financial penalties, and in some cases, legal action. It is very important for shippers to attend an ADR training course.

The Dangerous Goods Awareness Training Course will provide delegates with the essential knowledge necessary to satisfy the legal requirement for a basic level of dangerous goods training.
