Training for Dangerous Goods

03 May 2018

Training is an integral part of our lives when working in the Logistics of Dangerous Goods sector; be it compliance to regulations, such as COSHH, COMAH, ADR, IMDG / IMO, IATA / CAA, Aviation Security, Emergency First Aid, Manual and Materials Handling, Limited Quantity, DGSA, ADR security, Depot Training, Emergency Planning, Handling Chemicals and Incidents among many others.

Hazchem Network apart from deploying various training organisations for our team also help others, by sharing our knowledge and experience.

Recently Nick Mohr, Managing Director of Peter East Associates invited our Managing Director to be the key-note speaker at their Biennial Training and Consultancy Seminar. Nick wanted some "real-world" insight into how to resolve problems with Dangerous Goods in the Supply Chain, hence he contacted us.

Peter East Associates are widely recognised as the premier training company for all modes involved in the Carriage of Dangerous Goods, from Road [ADR], Rail [RID], Sea [IMDG / IATA] and Air [IATA / CAA]. They run approved courses, providing certification and validation, with their Qualified Trainers, Dangerous Goods Safety Advisors and Chemical / Logistics Consultants.

Our Managing Director used Peter East Associates in the past, when he required certification for his staff back at Linde Gas, for consigning Dangerous Goods by Air and Sea.

We would have no hesitation in recommending the services of Peter East Associates to ensure compliance as well focus, when your staff are involved in the Carriage of Dangerous Goods. Peter East Associates are approved by the UK's Department for Transport, Civil Aviation Authority and Irish Aviation Authority among others.

So a little context -

Working at Heathrow in 1986, Peter East realised the benefits of high quality professional training for those involved in the industry. Peter East Associates was formed and grew, moving to larger facilities, first in Finchley, North London during 1996 and then in 2009, to the current location at Elstree in Hertfordshire.

Since then, the Company's repertoire of training courses has continued to expand in line with demand and changes in regulations. The transport of Dangerous Goods by air, sea and road, plus Air Cargo Security now form the core of our training curriculum of professional development.

We have also added Dangerous Goods Consultancy and Dangerous Goods Safety Adviser (DGSA) Services.

Their 2018/19 Course Schedule has been released so for more information please go to
