ADR Training Courses in Cardiff and Swansea, Wales


ADR COURSES

ADR training and moving dangerous goods by road is governed by international regulations and is strictly policed. Most European countries are signed up to the European Agreement concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road (ADR). Each country that complies with ADR implements specific safety measures through its own national legislation.

The purpose of ADR is to ensure that dangerous goods (including clinical and other dangerous waste) being carried by road can cross international borders freely, as long as goods, vehicles and drivers comply with its provisions. ADR has been in force since 1968 and is administered by the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE). It’s updated every 2 years to take account of technological advances.


Under the European Agreement on ADR, drivers of vehicles ​with tanks and certain tank components, and some drivers of vehicles carrying dangerous goods in packages, must hold a special vocational certificate, sometimes referred to informally as an ‘ADR Certificate’.

All drivers of vehicles carrying dangerous goods must attend an approved basic ADR training course. These courses equip drivers with information and tools so that they:

  • are aware of the hazards in the carriage of dangerous goods
  • can take steps to reduce the likelihood of an incident taking place
  • can take all necessary measures for their own safety and that of the public and the environment to limit the effects of any incident that does occur
  • have individual practical experience of the actions they will need to take

The course has been designed to give our customers the confidence that they have satisfied the due diligence requirements of the Health and Safety at Work Act and The Management of Health and Safety Regulations with respect to training and provision of information for employees.

The program is designed to heighten the awareness of personnel other than drivers and to explain their legal responsibilities under the UK Carriage Regulations and ADR.

The courses are delivered by DFT registered ADR instructors or Dangerous Goods Safety Advisors.

The course can also be tailored to individual customers’ requirements.
