If an operation is involved in shipping dangerous goods by road, it is mandatory that staff receive regular training, 'appropriate to their responsibilities and duties' (ADR Chapter 1.3). In addition, DfT and HSE requirements call for staff involved in the packing, documentation, handling, loading/unloading or shipment of dangerous goods to have an understanding of certain UK regulations.
