If you transport and distribute hazardous and dangerous chemicals, there is a lot to think about to manage risk, ensure regulatory compliance and protect people and the environment.
You must be aware of the key information relating to the goods including:
Your employees must not pack dangerous goods if it is determined that the packaging is unsuitable and does not comply with road and rail, air and sea regulations.  Your vehicles must be licensed to transport dangerous goods.
Your drivers must be aware of their duties in relation to packaging, safety standards for vehicles and equipment, procedures during transport, stowage and restraint, segregation, placarding, parking and standing, unloading. In the event of a dangerous goods incident, your driver is responsible for executing an emergency plan, warning others and reporting the incident to the relevant authority, the prime contractor and the relevant emergency services authority.
If goods are temporarily unloaded and stored at your premises, you have a range of additional responsibilities including storage management, segregation, risk assessment, placards, manifests and emergency management.
