Dangerous Goods by Road (ADR)
This programme covers the regulations relating to the carriage of dangerous goods by road both in Great Britain (Statutory Instrument 2007 No.1573) and Europe (ADR). The full training requirements can be found in the ADR (European Agreement concerning the international carriage of dangerous goods by road) Volume 1, Chapter 1.3 (page 33). This Chapter also includes reference to "refresher training".
The three day course will enable student to use the ADR manual and the relevant GB Statutory Instruments to prepare dangerous goods shipments and associated documentation.
The two day revalidation programme is available for those who have previously attended the full course but need to refresh their knowledge (due to changes in the ADR and the GB Regulations). This should take place when the regulations change which is currently every two years. We have incorporated the revalidation course into the three day programme and students will attend on days two and three.
The course objectives are:
- Legal responsibilities
- Dangerous Goods classes (restrictive and non restrictive)
- Packaging, marking and labelling
- Mixed Packing
- Accident Instructions (TREM cards)
- GB Road Regulations
- Placarding of Vehicles
