The IMDG Code requires shore-based personnel engaged in the transport of dangerous goods by sea to be trained in accordance with the roles they perform(Specific Function)
All personnel must be familiar with the general provisions of the IMDG Code(General Awareness). Therefore training must cover:
- the different classes of dangerous goods;
- marking, labelling and placarding;
- transport documentation;
- stowage and segregation; and
- emergency response procedures
Training must be provided at both an awareness level and, where required, at a hands-on function specific level.
Any training provided must be periodically updated with refresher training. Training records must also be kept and be available to employees and competent authorities on request.
It is for the employer to determine who requires training, the appropriate level of training and
How the training is provided.
Our range of courses is designed to meet these requirements.
