Anyone who is planning on driving a vehicle carrying dangerous goods in scope of the regulations must, by law, obtain and hold a valid ADR licence.
Those who may handle dangerous goods, or are only involved in the packing process, do not need this licence.
ADR awareness is for those who:
- Come into contact with dangerous goods, such as the packing, handling & loading process
- Are involved in the process of carrying dangerous goods, but are not in the need of a fully certified ADR training course
- Anyone who fits within the ADR exemptions
When completing ADR awareness training with 2 Start, we will look at reinforcing key principles and basic codes of practice. These are to show how you as an employee can assure safety in the workplace.
This ADR Awareness 2-Day course will encapsulate everything in the 1-day awareness training and then include:
- Highlight the responsibilities of the individual who is working with dangerous goods underneath the ADR limit
- How the below threshold can still be a danger- also depending on the class being transported below the threshold.
- What to do in the event of a dangerous good package being damaged
- primarily for those receiving packages, such as when to refuse a package
- This could be from cartons, to drums and cylinders
- Also considering spillages, environmental problems that could be a factor
- Packages for certain types of dangerous goods (vapours, liquids etc)
- Enforcement of dangerous goods regulations for transport by road
- How to avoid the risk of penalties and comply with the legal framework
- Risk assessments
- Reference to HSE-Risk assessments
- This can also include understanding forms and documents in relation to the dangerous good and how it should be filled out (also including what to do in the event of the forms being completed incorrectly)
- Where to find information on hazards regarding dangerous goods
- Giving the students a list of resources to fall back to if they are ever unsure about the situation regarding a hazard in the work place.
The end of the training will result in a test given to the students. Upon completion, if passed, will receive a certificate of competence.
