Hazmat Safety Priorities for Carriers

Health, Safety, Security, and Sustainability Risks

Beyond regulatory compliance, the transportation of hazardous materials and dangerous goods carries health, safety, security and sustainability risks requiring management at a corporate level, including:

  • People, Environment, Assets and Reputation (PEAR) risks
  • Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) risks
  • Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) risks
  • Responsible Care® risks
  • Business Continuity (BC) risks

Organizations involved in the transportation of goods, whether they are hazardous or not, use hazardous materials or dangerous goods in the operation/maintenance of their vehicles and therefore have the responsibility of complying with various regulations surrounding the safe use and handing of chemicals and other hazmat, training of their staff and, incident preparedness, response, and recovery.

Goods or materials classified as hazardous/dangerous for transportation under one or more transport mode, either as packaged goods or in bulk, require regulatory compliance support across multiple jurisdictions. 

From our experience, organizations in the transportation sector find the following CHEMTREC services valuable to manage and mitigate their organizational risks as well as help them comply with regulations:
