DG Awareness

This Dangerous Goods Awareness course is multi modal and designed with those involved with the transport of dangerous goods in mind.


Due to an increase in incidents involving dangerous goods in transport, this course is an essential introduction to dangerous goods transportation as the regulations state “personnel involved in the transport of dangerous goods must be trained”.

Whether new to dangerous goods transportation or as a refresher, this course will benefit those not directly involved in the packing and documenting of dangerous goods by enabling them to identify dangerous goods during transport.

The course includes:

  • A background to the regulations
  • Identification of the nine classes
  • Package markings and labels
  • Documentation
  • Safe Handling
  • Dealing with incidents

If your business involves any single mode of transport we also offer the individual modal awareness, rates can be provided upon request for all of our awareness courses, please contact us for more details.
