Training Is Key To Dangerous Goods Compliance

May 30, 2023

Non-compliance of dangerous goods is certainly being cracked down in many aspects of the logistics industry after a series of destructive events over the past couple of years.

This is evidenced through the approach of steamship and air cargo carriers, and also the recent legislation that made appointing a DGSA a legal requirement.

To meet your obligation, if you are involved in the handling, receiving or transport of dangerous goods, then training your staff is key. This starts with dangerous goods awareness training, which is the entry level requirement for any for your staff involved in the process, including sales, customer service, operations, administration and warehousing staff.

Evolution Group offer a dangerous goods awareness course, provided instantly online, that provides your team members with the necessary basic understanding and meets your legal requirements.

The course provides an overview of regulations, the recognition of dangerous goods and the hazards that dangerous goods present. The four lessons are designed in the modern prezi format, and can be taken on multiple devices.

Users can work at their own pace and upon completion of a short multiple choice test, DGSA approved certificates can be downloaded online. For more more details please visit www.dangerousgoodsawareness.co.uk, or contact us by phone or email.
