In-house employee training
Officers or other responsible persons must have sufficient knowledge of the procedures on the carriage of hazardous materials relevant to their remit. This training or instruction of employees must take place before taking up a corresponding task in the carriage of hazardous materials and then on a regular basis. If the task is changed or extended, the corresponding training is also necessary before starting this new activity. The training obligation also exists if only hazardous materials in limited quantities or in laboratory quantities are carried or prepared for transport (LQ Regulation). The training shall also cover the area of security. Appropriate records must be maintained about this training in accordance with Chapter 1.3 of the ADR. The external hazardous materials adviser can carry out this training. In the event of failure to provide training or if records are missing, a fine of €500 may be applied.
We are happy to train your employees. The training will usually take place on site, an initial training or instruction when an employee takes on new or different tasks can also be done in the form of a webinar. If you appoint us as safety adviser for your business, under this contract we will train your employees regularly without special commissioning. But we are also happy to train your employees even if you have appointed another safety officer, but you may want to cover additional training needs. Talk to us about it and we will together draw up the specific training package for your employees.
