Security of High Consequence Dangerous Goods by Rail & Road


A new DVD regarding the security of high consequence dangerous goods by rail and road is now available from the Department for Transport. The film features a dramatisation based on the security requirements of CDG and ADR/RID. It is designed to reflect typical threats faced by all those involved in the carriage of DG e.g. HGV crew, train crews, transport managers or administrative staff with access to Dangerous Goods transport information. The film works as a guide to the good practice that will help you minimise the risk to security from terrorists and criminals. It can be used as part of individual, toolbox or classroom-based security training (both initial & refresher).
