Dangerous Goods Safety Advisor requirement
A Dangerous Goods Safety Advisor (DGSA) is a person certified to provide advice to companies whose activities include consignment, carriage, or the related packing, loading, filling or unloading of dangerous goods to monitor compliance with legal requirements and to ensure the preparation of annual reports. The DGSA is also responsible for implementing specified procedures relating to handling and managing dangerous goods and that they are adhered to throughout the business.
The legislation requires companies to appoint an external DGSA to their business for ADR compliance. Kleenwaste offer a comprehensive DGSA service, which will ensure your business is compliant with all legislative requirements. Kleenwaste will appoint you a designated DGSA who will work closely with you advising on correct procedures for your site, supply regular updates and create your annual report.
The regulations surrounding this requirement (ADR) previously exempted companies from requiring a designated DGSA if they consign shipments, but are not actively involved in any of the loading, packing, filling or unloading activities. However, an amendment to the ADR 2019 now requires these companies to recruit or appoint a DGSA by 31st December 2021.
