Our Chemical Transport and Safety Awareness Training brings attention to key safety aspects in Liquid Chemical Transport. During the training you have the opportunity to use our Demo Tank Container and have practical experience on-site. 

  • Behaviour-Based Safety: We underscore the importance of conscious safe behaviour to prevent accidents. Almost 80% of all accidents are attributed to human error, often due to inattention or misdirected attention.
  • Personal Protection Equipment (PPE): We guide trainees on the correct use of PPE such as safety harness, safety shoes, high-visibility jackets, chemical overalls, helmets, gloves, safety glasses, and more.
  • 3-Minute Checks: Trainees learn how to perform 3-minute checks before and after loading/unloading, ensuring the safety and appropriateness of the equipment and documentation.
  • Couplings and Hoses: The training explains the usage of different types of couplings and hoses.
  • Tank (Container) Safety and Features: Trainees learn about various tank container safety features and how to secure them.
  • Tank Operation: We discuss the operation of top and ground-operated tank containers and what to do in case of vacuum danger.
  • Loading and unloading: Trainees learn different unloading methods including using the vehicle compressor, chassis pump, and gravity.
  • ADR Requirements: We cover essential ADR requirements such as ADR filling levels, use of earth cable, and the use of wheel chocks.
  • Non-Standard Operations: We guide participants through non-standard situations, offering advice on how to handle product sampling, unloading in IBCs or barrels, handling of ADR Class 3 products, and working at height.

Safety is not limited to the work site - we also provide guidelines on safe behaviours while on the go and have personal protection equipment available for demonstration purposes. By emphasizing safety in all environments, we aim to set a mindset of precaution, regardless of the setting.

A selection of our Personal Protection Equipment (PPE), also available during the training for demonstration purposes.
