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.

FAQ's

If you have any questions that are not covered here, please get in touch.

Dangerous goods in shipping refers to any materials that might be considered harmful if they were to enter a country without being monitored. This can include hazardous substances, flammable materials and environmentally damaging goods. Specific definitions of “dangerous goods” vary depending on each country’s laws and the circumstances of the shipment.

There are officially 9 kinds of dangerous goods, all of which require packaging and labelling in accordance with international regulations. A label specifying class 3 dangerous goods in a shipment, for example, would contain flammable liquids. Correct labelling helps ensure all goods are transported, stored and inspected using the correct safety procedures.

Dangerous goods are classified as such because of their potential to cause immediate chemical or physical effects such as fire or corrosion. It is better to stay on the side of caution and research dangerous goods before making the shipment, as failing to identify dangerous goods can lead to damage to people, property and the environment.
