Organisations involved in the road transport of dangerous goods, or the related packing, loading, filling or unloading, are required to appoint a qualified Dangerous Goods Safety Adviser (DGSA). The DGSA must pass the relevant examination and revalidate their certificate by examination every five years.
Sara Wilson has been a practicing DGSA since first qualifying in May 1999 prior to the introduction of the DGSA regulations, and has since revalidated her certificate for all classes by road three times. She has practical experience of the regulations concerning the carriage of dangerous goods in both packages and tanks, by all transport modes, and is a contributor to Croner’s dangerous goods publications.
A good working knowledge of the supply classification and labelling regulations, and other chemical legislation provides an extended service where required. Advice on specific issues such as classification, labelling, packaging and transport documentation can be provided. Bespoke training is also carried out.
