Who Needs Dangerous Goods Awareness Training?

Those involved in the packing, loading, unloading, consigning and transporting of dangerous goods are required to be suitable trained and hold a solid knowledge of dangerous goods awareness.

"Persons - whose duties concern the carriage of dangerous goods, shall be trained in the requirements governing the carriage of such goods appropriate to their responsibilities and duties."
ADR Volume 1
Chapter 1.3

While those involved in the carriage of such items are normally covered through their ADR training, the other groups generally still require some form of training in order to remain fully compliant with ADR.

How Does The Dangerous Goods Awareness Course Work?

Taking place in the classroom or remotely, this broad topic can be broken down into:

  • Regulations and legislation
  • The hazards associated with each class of ADR
  • Dangerous goods packaging and storage
  • Markings of both vehicles and dangerous goods
  • Transport documentation
  • Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
  • Essential first aid
  • Responses to breaches and hazards
  • Security

Personalised Training Plan

While training is required for those involved in the industry, the exact nature of the training is not specified.

As such, we will agree a personalised training plan with you to ascertain your exact requirements, and to ensure that you are not given dangerous goods awareness training that is irrelevant to your duties.
