Transporting of Aerosols
BAMA Office, Stevenage
Aerosols are pressurised containers and are classified as ‘dangerous goods’ for transport; under the Carriage of Dangerous Goods Regulations any shipment, including samples, must be properly declared and adequately packaged. Fortunately most aerosols are exempted from the full regulations and eligible for the more relaxed requirements when transported as ‘dangerous goods in limited quantities’.
In the UK the Health and Safety at Work Act requires that employees undergo appropriate training to discharge their responsibilities during employment. Further some years ago the Carriage of Dangerous Goods Regulations introduced a specific training requirement for those involved in consigning dangerous goods for transport. This BAMA course fulfils this requirement for aerosols by explaining how to classify, pack, label, document and mark aerosols for transport.
Who should attend?
This one day course, delivered for BAMA by an expert from the UK Department of Transport, is designed for any employee involved in consigning aerosols for transport by road, rail, air or sea, and provides awareness for air transport. The course covers both UK domestic and international deliveries. A certificate will be issued to those who attend.
All delegates will need a copy of the 13th Edition of the BAMA Guide to the International Transport of Aerosols (2019). This Guide is free to BAMA members and is included in the course fee for non-members.
