International Maritime Dangerous Goods (IMDG)
The International Maritime Dangerous Goods (IMDG) training is designed for individuals who are involved in the transportation of hazardous materials by sea. The course provides participants with an understanding of the dangerous goods regulations and requirements for safe transportation of hazardous materials, including proper labelling, packaging, and documentation. Participants will also learn about the hazards and risks associated with dangerous goods and how to prevent and respond to incidents during transportation by sea.
- Dangerous Goods Regulations: Understanding the regulations and requirements for the transportation of hazardous materials by sea, including proper labelling, packaging, and documentation of dangerous goods.
- Hazards and Risks: Understanding the potential hazards and risks associated with dangerous goods, including fire, explosion, and environmental damage, and how to prevent and respond to incidents involving dangerous goods during transportation by sea.
The IMDG training typically lasts for 8 hours and may include a mix of theoretical and practical components. The course may also include case studies, group discussions, and hands-on activities to help participants apply their knowledge in real-world situations. Upon completion of the course, participants will receive a certificate of competence, which is usually valid for a certain period of time (usually 3 years).
