Dangerous Goods Safety Adviser

Organisations whose activities include the carriage, or the related packing, loading, filling or unloading of dangerous goods by road are required to appoint one or more Safety Advisers whose responsibility will be to help mitigate the risks inherent in such activities with regard to Persons, Property and the Environment.

The Adviser must attend training, pass an examination approved by the Competent Authority and hold a Vocational Training Certificate. The Certificate lasts for 5 years and can be renewed by the Adviser passing an examination anytime during the year before its expiry.

We provide training which will enable candidates to understand the application of the Chapters of the ADR Agreement and associated GB Carriage Regulations. The training will also prepare candidates for the Scottish Qualifications Authority examinations which can be taken at one of the centres of their choice.
The examination is an “open book” type.

Our 5 day training courses are held at Cardiff.

Courses include: Core module, Road and All Classes.
