If your company in consigning or transporting hazardous goods you are required to appoint a Dangerous Goods Safety Advisor (DGSA). The Swilly Group has a number of DGSAs who can provide this service for your company as well as providing DGSA training.
The Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road Regulations prohibits the transport of dangerous goods by road by a transport operator unless it has appointed a safety adviser. The safety adviser is required to fulfil specified functions including advising the transport operator on the transport of dangerous goods and compliance with the regulation. A safety adviser cannot be appointed unless he or she holds a vocational training certificate appropriate to the transport operator and to the dangerous goods transported by that operator.
The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT) has been appointed by the Health and Safety Authority as the examination body for Dangerous Goods Safety Advisors.
