Why You Need Dangerous Shipments Training
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. Making sure your employees understand these is important to avoid delays, incorrect handling, damage to property and even injuries.
