Transport Labelling and Documentation
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 184.108.40.206. The module addresses the requirements of ADR 2017, the GB Carriage of Dangerous Goods and Use of Transportable Pressure Equipment Regulations 2009 (as amended), as well as the IMDG Code 2016.
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.
Benefits Of Attending
The marks/labels and transport document are used to communicate essential information to enable decisions to be made regarding safe loading and stowage as well as in the event of an accident or incident. The high proportion of prohibition notices issued for violations of the provisions for transport documentation reflects their importance and the seriousness with which such infringements are viewed by the enforcement authorities. Attendance of this series of modules will ensure that your transport marks/labels and documents, and SDSs comply with the regulations and meet the increasing expectations of your customers.
The Module also provides an overview of relaxations to the transport regulations that can make life easier for consignors, and the marks/labels and documentation required for these. To ensure the most effective training with optimum involvement in participative exercises, there will be a limit of 14 on the number of students.
IOSH members are entitled to include this module in their continuing professional development records.
What You Will Learn
The module provides function specific training for those involved in the marking, labelling and documentation of dangerous goods for carriage by road and sea, and the preparation of safety data sheets. It includes an understanding of:
- legislative requirements and responsibilities
- the use of classification data in the marking and labelling of packages
- information to be given in safety data sheet Section 14.
- the transport document (Dangerous Goods Note)
- information requirements (including wastes and empty packaging)
- differences between road and sea; the packing certificate for sea
- Instructions in Writing – road
- an understanding of relaxations to the regulations, and the requirements for marks/labels and documentation for these:
- transport of dangerous goods in Limited Quantities
- transport of dangerous goods in Excepted Quantities
- the low load relaxation of ADR 220.127.116.11
- future changes to the transport regulations.
Little change is expected following the exit of the UK from the EU: as the UK is an independent Contracting Party to ADR these regulations will continue to apply to international consignments post-Brexit. The UK has also independently ratified the relevant IMO conventions covered by the IMDG Code which are not currently addressed by the EU.
This module will be presented by Sara Wilson of Seil Synergies Ltd. Sara has over twenty-five years’ experience in chemical regulations and is a practicing DGSA. She was head of the regulatory department for the UK division of a multinational chemical company before relocating and setting up her own business working as an independent consultant.
