What is an effective Dangerous Goods program?

An effective Dangerous Goods program is tailored to your specific organization. The basic fundamentals however should include Policy & SOP documents, regular staff training, audits, and a mechanism for continuous improvement. Remember, simply holding a Dangerous Goods certification will have little value if your organization does not have a strong Dangerous Goods compliance program in place.

Common misunderstanding of Dangerous Goods Certification

Hazardous Materials training alone is not sufficient; it teaches you only the regulation and not the day-to-day steps necessary. Job specific training is required by law and is a key mitigating factor in case of penalties. You should implement an effective Dangerous Goods program before transporting potentially dangerous materials.
