Module 10 - Marks, Labels and Documentation for Transport (10.213)
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. You will learn how to mark, label and complete a dangerous goods note.
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 quantities, and the low load exemption of ADR 126.96.36.199. The module will address the requirements of ADR 2021, the GB domestic Carriage of Dangerous Goods and Use of Transportable Pressure Equipment (Amendment) (EU Exit) Regulations 2020 as well as the IMDG Code 2020.
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, 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.
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 16 on the number of students.
As well as a booklet containing copies of the presentation slides, attendees will also receive an 18-page set of reference notes.
IOSH members are entitled to include this module in their continuing professional development records.

Comments from previous delegates on this training module:
“Exercises really helpful, cemented my understanding”
“Strategically covered a lot of material in a short time – handouts/course materials are great”
“Excellent presenter and supporting staff member. Both helpful & approachable which lead to many questions”
“Very informative. Was good to do after Module 8”
“Very good speaker who answered all the questions and presented everything clearly. Very informative training"
