Choose safety in your dangerous goods transport packaging

The transport of hazardous materials represents a real challenge for operators in the pharmaceutical, agri-food or laboratory chemical sectors. Often carried out by road, it can also be carried out by rail, sea or air. There are many national and international regulations governing the transport of hazardous materials to ensure the protection of all parties. Tournaire will assist you in your choice of container for the transport of hazardous materials.

Containers for the transport of dangerous goods: What are the applicable regulations?

The UN has established a list of 2,700 hazardous materials. These are divided into nine classes according to the particular type of hazard. The packaging must be clearly marked with the product’s hazard class number and a 4-digit UN number to identify the product. This signage allows emergency services to react quickly in the event of an incident. Goods can be hazardous to humans and the environment to varying degrees. You need to know the characteristics of the material: flammable, compressed gas, explosive, etc. This will determine the nature of your container for transporting hazardous materials.

The most common risks associated with hazardous products are explosion, toxicity, corrosion and fire. When handling these types of hazardous materials, it is essential to take very strict precautions to ensure an absolute level of hazardous product safety. To protect all operators in the loading/transport/unloading process, it is essential to use a 100% guaranteed hazardous material transport container.
