The Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road Regulations prohibit the transport of dangerous goods by road or rail by an undertaking unless
it has appointed a safety adviser. In this context “transport of dangerous goods” includes those who load, transport or unload dangerous goods with some exceptions inclusive of undertakings at the final delivery destination (e.g. supermarkets or petrol stations).
The Safety Advisor is required to fulfil specified functions including advising the undertaking who appointed them in health, safety and environmental matters
in connection with the transport of dangerous goods and the preparation of necessary reports.
A Safety Advisor cannot be appointed unless they hold a vocational training certificate appropriate to the modes of transport used by the undertaking and to all dangerous goods, or one or more of the groups of dangerous goods specified and transported by the undertaking. Mutual recognition of vocational training certificates issued in other member states of the European Community, or in Northern Ireland is provided for.
A Safety Advisor cannot hold a vocational training certificate unless he/she passes a Dangerous Goods Safety Advisor examination.
On behalf of the Health and Safety Authority and the Railway Safety Commission, The Chartered Institute of Logistics & Transport is the Examining Body in Ireland for the DGSA examination for both Road and Rail.
