Main duties of the Safety Adviser include:


  • Monitoring compliance with the requirements governing the carriage of dangerous goods
  • Advising the undertaking on the carriage of dangerous goods
  • Preparing an annual report to be presented to the local authority
  • Monitoring the operational procedures or instructions related to identification of dangerous goods, purchases of  means of transport, loading, unloading
  • Assuring appropriate training for people involved in dangerous goods transport
