This course is available as part of the Compliance eLearning Suite in one great package.
Dangerous goods are materials or items with physical and/or chemical properties which, if not properly controlled, present a potential hazard to our health and safety, our infrastructure, or the means of transport used to ship them.
This microlearning course ensures employees are familiar with and are able to recognise dangerous goods, as well as remaining aware about the potential risks of transporting dangerous goods. It provides an overview into the legislation imposed by Customs on dangerous goods and how to find out if your shipment is classified as dangerous or not.
What to Expect
Employees can expect to learn:
- The 9 categories of dangerous goods
- How to find out whether your shipmen is classified as dangerous goods
- Packing instructions for high, medium, and low danger goods
- Correct packing and labelling instructions

The UN's Dangerous Goods Regulations form the basis of any dangerous goods legislation you may encounter in the UK. These may be set out by a number of bodies, e.g. the International Air Transport Association (IATA) or the International Maritime Organisation (IMO).
However your organisations chooses to transport dangerous goods (air, land, or sea) there will be restrictions and regulations to follow regarding handling and transportation.
