Dangerous Goods Awareness

Dangerous Goods are present in many workplaces today. With the implementation of Chain of Responsibility laws in Western Australia do you know enough about the Dangerous Goods that your workplace buys, stores, receives or uses?

This course is designed for Managers, Supervisors and Support personnel who come into contact with or are responsible for consignment, loading, unloading and storing of dangerous goods.

Extremely well presented given the short timeframe, topics well covered and key points highlighted.

Delivered on site and delivered well. Good pace and good refresher sessions each day to go over previous content. The trainer was on time and well prepared.

This was my second DG course. The first was years ago at another training school. I found it all very confusing. This time after training at Nationwide, I have come away from the course feeling competent at correctly completing my job
when carting DG.

— M.Campbell

Not having much DG experience this course was ideal, gave me the confidence to make the right decisions. The traier was well organised, ready to hit the ground running on both days.
