Organiser Chemical Hazards Communication Society (CHCS)
Location H10 London Waterloo, 284 to 302 Waterloo Road, London SE1 8RQ
Details

Following on from the dangerous goods classification and identification covered in Module 8, CHCS Module 10 shows how this information is used to communicate the hazards associated with the carriage of dangerous goods to those involved in the transport chain and emergency response.

The module examines the marks and labels required for the transport of general chemical classes of dangerous goods in packages by road and sea, together with associated documentation such as the Dangerous Goods Note and Instructions in Writing. The requirements for consignments in full scope of the regulations are covered in detail, together with an overview of the relaxations to the regulations provided in the provisions for limited and excepted quantities, and the low load exemption of ADR 1.1.3.6. The module addresses the requirements of ADR 2019, the GB Carriage of Dangerous Goods and Use of Transportable Pressure Equipment Regulations 2009 (as amended), as well as the IMDG Code 2018.

Who Should Attend?

This module is aimed at those who have responsibility for assigning transport package marks and labels, and compiling transport documentation for dangerous goods by road and sea, as well as those completing section 14 of the safety data sheet. With the regulations being revised every two years, as well as providing function specific training for those new to the role, Module 10 also provides refresher training, as required by the regulations, for existing practitioners; highlighting the relevant changes to previous revisions of ADR and the IMDG Code, as well as giving an indication of issues being addressed for inclusion in future revisions to the regulations.

Attendance of the module will also be of benefit to those who are involved generally in the transport of dangerous goods, and emergency response personnel.
