ADR AWARENESS ONLINE COURSE

1 DAY

All drivers within the scope of the Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road (Driver Training) Regulations 1996 must be trained and hold a Vocational Training Certificate issued by DVLA. This is required by UK regulations implementing the relevant EU directive.

ADR, formally the European Agreement concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road (ADR), is a 1957 United Nations treaty that governs transnational transport of hazardous materials.

The ADR General Awareness online course allows individuals to safely carry, handle and receive consignments of dangerous goods and limited quantity goods in line with legal requirements.

From 30/06/15, dangerous goods awareness training became mandatory for enterprises dealing with goods packed in limited quantities (LQ) who have not undertaken suitable training. It impacts on drivers of vehicles carrying LQ provisions behind the scenes packers, loaders, unloaders and relevant administration personnel. LQ goods include paints, aerosols, perfumes and household cleaning products. Although classified as dangerous, if packed in smaller containers with inner pack size limits, the risk to the public in the event of an incident may be lowered.

The concept of LQ goods applies across all modes of transport. Duties of the carrier and consignor vary significantly for air transport (IATA regulations), sea (IMDG regulations), rail (RID regulations) and road (ADR regulations).

The Merlin Academy provides consignors and consignees of dangerous goods and LQ goods with indispensable knowledge of ADR Regulations, along with essential awareness.
