The safety officer
A company adviser
Once a company is involved in the transport of hazardous materials and is subject to obligations as a participant in the hazardous materials regulation relating to roads, rail and inland waterways or in the Maritime Hazardous Materials Regulation, it must appoint at least one safety officer. The safety officer takes on the primary responsibility of the operator or owner of an establishment to seek ways and means and to arrange for measures that facilitate compliance with the regulations on the carriage of hazardous materials for each carrier. They have no authority but are rather a "consultant" of the entrepreneur.
His primary responsibilities include:
To perform these tasks, an external safety adviser can be appointed. A safety adviser must be in possession of a valid certificate of training for the carrier in question. KFT Chemieservice has been providing safety advisers to many businesses for nearly 20 years. As our safety officers have also worked for many years in companies of the chemical industry and trade, we have first-hand experience of the demands.
