Security of Dangerous Goods

Who Needs Security of Dangerous Goods Training?

As members of the industry, it is the responsibility of all of us to ensure the security of dangerous goods.

"Training requirements specific to security of dangerous goods - shall - be addressed"
ADR Volume 1
Chapter 1.3

As well as being a requirement for personnel, those of us involved with dangerous goods have a greater responsibility than most to apply security and prevent them from falling into the wrong hands.

As such, this course is designed for everybody involved in the industry, from managers, supervisors and other decision makers, to drivers and operational staff.

How Does The Security of Dangerous Goods Course Work?

This course can take place in the classroom or remotely, and covers all of the essential aspects of security involved in the carriage, operation and storage of these items, such as:

  • Recognising and addressing the nature of security risks
  • Methods to address and reduce risks
  • Actions to be taken in the event of a security breach
  • The implementation of policies and procedures involved in a security plan

Our instructors will take the required time to to ensure that every candidate leaves this course with confidence in these sections, and with the knowledge necessary to carry out the duties of a consignor.

Managerial Course

As well as the general course for drivers and operational staff, we also offer a managerial course for managers, supervisors and other decision makers. 

This course has been designed in such a way that your company can deliver the training to employees once it is completed.

After completing the managerial course, you will be provided with the course materials and approval from us to train the drivers and operational staff on dangerous goods security from within the company.

Providing this course under your own approval comes with the significant advantages of:

Cost effectiveness

Trust

Whether you choose to continue sending individuals to our premises after completing the Managerial Course, or if you decide to complete the training in-house, is entirely up to you.

This course is approved by CPD, which means that you will be provided with an accredited certificate upon completion. If you go on to train your own drivers or staff, you will also be able to provide them with the accredited CPD certificate.
