Training – awareness


The TDG (Transportation of Dangerous Goods) regulations require a training of agents according to their role and responsibilities regarding transportation of these goods.
In order to do this, the DGSA team provides specific actions depending on the target audience.

Awareness campaigns

These operations are aimed towards all personnel of a laboratory or a given site. They are an initiation to Transportation of Dangerous Goods (TDG) where participants learn about the responsibilities of each operator (sender, recipient or transporter) as well as what to do when preparing or receiving a package containing dangerous goods.

For who?
Unit managers, heads of departments and anyone involved in the transport chain (parcel reception, packaging and shipping) will know which measures must be taken – if need be – so that the unit follows safety rules.
We can also step in during certain meetings (e.g. prevention assistant meeting, unit manager meeting, general meeting…)

What are the objectives?
These presentations allow you to understand the notion of “dangerous goods” and the transportation rules they imply.

Special training

The DGSA team offers trainings specially adapted to research personnel activities.
We train you on the transport regulations for your biological goods shipping, reception and transportation operations, as well as disposal of hazardous waste, radioactive sources or any other situation…

The objectives:

The “Transportation of dangerous goods” training answers the mandatory training of persons involved in the carriage of dangerous goods described in chapter 1.3 of the ADR (Agreement of 30 September 1957 concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road).
Format may vary depending on the audience and may be adapted to personnel duties.
The training usually takes place over 3 days: a 2-day core curriculum (alternating presentations and exercises) and specialization modules on the third day (gas, waste, biological goods, radioactive goods…).
This training is added to personnel files. It is validated by a recognized certificate.
Note: a record of trainings received must be kept by the employer and passed on to the employee or appropriate authority upon request (ADR paragraph 1.3.3 and article 6.1 of the TDG decree of May 29, 2009).
