ADR Awareness

Company drivers who carry limited quantities of dangerous goods must undertake training to be aware of potential dangers that these items pose whilst being transported. They also need to know how to load, store and label these goods correctly.

Typical examples include fuel for garden machinery, propane for welding, oxygen and nitrogen bottles for medical use. This half-day DriveWise course will give drivers information and knowledge to help them stay safe and to understand regarding the legal framework for such loads, helping them to remain compliant and avoid the risk of penalties or fines.
