The many rules and regulations that govern the transportation of hazardous and potentially dangerous materials require careful attention. To ease any concerns or fears our customers may have, we liaise with the appointed personnel within your organisation to ensure all
legal requirements are
satisfied. These would include the preparation of Risk Assessments, Method Statements, Cargo Manifests and other specialist documents.
Within our experienced and fully trained team we have a fully qualified Dangerous Goods Safety Advisor (DGSA) as well as certified chemist. The role of the DGSA is central in ensuring that all equipment and packing materials utilised on a move are appropriate and meet legal
requirements. Our certified chemist advises in particular instances of transportation of chemical substances
that are governed by ADR (The Carriage of Dangerous Goods by road:- "Accord
European elative au Transport international des marchandises Dangereuses par route")
guidelines. Any organisation operating under these regulations is easily identifiable by the large orange warning plates mounted on the front and rear of the vehicle. Our drivers also hold ADR
licenses in additional to their LGV certification.
