ADR (European Agreement concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road) requires training of persons involved in the transportation of dangerous goods in accordance with chapter 1.3 and training of the vehicle crew according to chapter 8.3.
National road regulations require training for the driver to obtain a licence or permit to operate the type of vehicle used for transport.
However, the experience in the gas industry demonstrates that the knowledge and skills acquired from this training need to be supplemented with training specific for the industrial and medical gases industry to ensure the safe distribution of gases.
This Safety Information document gives advice on the type of training drivers and other transport function personnel should receive when working with products of Class 2 of ADR for the industrial and medical gases industry.
It is is intended for managers, drivers and other transport function personnel who are involved in transportation activities or driver training.
