Dangerous Goods Transport General Awareness
The Dangerous Goods Transport General Awareness course is for personnel who need a familiarisation with dangerous goods transport regulations and an awareness of the duties that arise from them.
The Dangerous Goods Transport General Awareness course fully meets the ‘awareness training’ requirements in 220.127.116.11.1 of the IMDG Code (Amdt 39-18), 18.104.22.168 of the ADR Agreement and RID Regulations and also highlights requirements in the air transport regulations and the 49CFR domestic dangerous goods regulations.
It is ideal for warehouse personnel, clerical workers, administrators, managers, customer service and/or sales personnel and others who have a very limited direct involvement in dangerous goods shipping or transport activities but need a general appreciation of the regulations.
The following sections are included in the programme:
- Course scope and objectives
- Dangerous goods transport legislation
- Classification and identification
- Consignment and transport procedures
- The journey rules - operational consideration
- Emergency response issues
If more than a familiarisation with the IMDG Code's requirements is required then please consider one of our function-specific courses.
