Transcript of Dangerous Goods Presentation

Presented By Dangerous Goods Awareness
Training Dangerous goods are substances or articles that pose a risk to people, property or the environment, due to their chemical or physical properties.

These products are classified for transport. They
are usually classified with reference to their immediate risk. Regulations We Use: At DEB, we currently only use the ADR & IMDG Regulations.

As a general rule due to the mode of transport, the IMDG Code (sea regulations) are more stringent than the ADR Regulations (Road Transport) Dangerous Goods Definition Dangerous Goods Classifications 1. Explosive Substances & Articles 2. Gases 3. Flammable Liquids 4. Other Flammable Substances 5. Oxidising Substances & Organic Peroxides 6. Toxic & Infectious Substances 7. Radioactive Materials 8. Corrosive Substances 9. Miscellaneous Substances & Articles Classification Warning Diamonds These diamonds are the diamond used on cases or vehicles to highlight which dangerous goods are contained. Ben Housden D.G.S.A. Packing Groups Each Classification is divided into one of three packing groups: I - Great Danger
II - Medium Danger
III - Minor Danger The packing group of the product is important, as it determines how the product must be packaged and also the limited quantity rules of the product. How Products Are Classified For each classification of dangerous goods, there are different tests that are defined by the UN. These tests must be carried out to determine which classification the products fall under, and what packing group they should be assigned to. To determine if a product is Class 8 (Corrosive substance) you have to complete a full thickness destruction of skin tissue test. This entails putting the suspect product onto skin, and measuring the length of time it takes to destroy that skin. To determine if a product is Class 3 (Flammable liquid) must have their boiling points and flash points measured to determine if they are flammable, and which packing group they should be assigned to. Limited Quantities Some products can be packed into Limited Quantities, the quantity of product contained within these packs, and whether or not they can be packed as Limited Quantities is determined by the classification of the product. Swarfega Brick & Masonary Cleaner For example, Swarfega Brick & Masonry Cleaner is packed as a limited quantity. Due to the limit specified by the transport regulations we can only pack 5ltrs as a maximum per inner, and with a maximum of 30kg per outer. Limited Quantites - Continued If a product can be packed as a Limited Quantity it means that certain aspects of the dangerous goods regulations no longer
apply. It also means that the products must be labelled differently. For example:
Swarfega Brick & Masonry Cleaner is a corrosive substance (class 8)…
However it does not have to display the corrosive diamond, it only has to display the limited quantity diamond. It also means only certain aspects of the paperwork are required, and an ADR certificate is only required if the load is over the weight limits. The packs also do not have to have UN Packaging like full dangerous goods. Proper Shipping Name The proper shipping name is an important element of the transport of dangerous goods as it describes which products / classifications are contained on a load. For example the proper shipping name for our Alcohol Foam is:

ALCOHOLS, N.O.S. (ethanol, propyl alcohol (Deb Instant Foam Hand Sanatiser)), class 3, PG II, (D/E), (19 degrees C c.c.) Proper Shipping Name - Continued This allows the emergency services determine what the product contained within a consignment / case is. Restrictions Dangerous goods are restricted on which tunnels they are allowed to be transported through. These restrictions are controlled by a products tunnel code. Consequences of Ignoring Dangerous Goods The consequences of ignoring dangerous goods can be catastrophic, resulting in massive damages to property, environment and people...

UN 1789 HYDROCHLORIC ACID (Swarfega Brick & Masonry Cleaner), class 8, PG III, (E)

This means that they are not allowed to be
transported through tunnels with the codes E

Tunnel Code
Dartford (tunnel only) C
Limehouse E
Rotherhithe E
Blackwall E
East India Dock Road E For example our Swarfega Brick & Masonary Cleaner has to follow the restrictions for tunnels with the restriction code E: Reason For The Training: The ADR regulations state that:

Employees shall be trained in accordance with 1.3.2 before assuming responsibilities and shall only perform functions, for which training has not yet been provided, under the direct supervision of a trained person. Other Regulations: There are also regulations for the manner in which you ship Dangerous Goods by rail and air.

The regulations for Dangerous Goods transported by air are far more stringent.
