The Dangerous Goods - General familiarization and Safety familiarizes you with the handling and treatment of dangerous goods in air transport in accordance to ICAO Annex 6 and IATA 1.5 requirements. It was specifically designed to meet the needs of management, cargo handlers, and maintenance personnel dealing with dangerous goods in their everyday work.
By law an employer must ensure that personnel are competent to perform any function for which they are responsible prior to performing any of these functions. This must be achieved through training and assessment commensurate with the functions for which they are responsible. Such training must include: (a) general familiarization training—personnel must be trained to be familiar with the general provisions; (b) function specific training—personnel must be trained to competently perform the function for which they are responsible; and (c) safety training—personnel must be trained on how to recognize the hazards presented by dangerous goods, on the safe handling of dangerous goods and on emergency response procedures.
Therefore, this competency based training covers these required topics within four modules:
