There are a number of substances, materials, preparations or products that can be harmful to people and the environment. As soon as these goods are transported in the public domain, i.e. on the road, by rail or by ship, they are referred to as dangerous goods. In addition to the labelling obligation for these dangerous goods, a number of legal regulations apply to this topic. Among other things, it is precisely specified which equipment must be carried when transporting dangerous goods. It is particularly practical when manufacturers and suppliers offer the appropriate GGVSEB equipment directly as a set.
Components of GGVSEB equipment
The Dangerous Goods Ordinance for road and rail transport defines not only the general conditions for the transport containers but also, among other things, the necessary equipment to be carried for load securing and personal protective equipment. GGVSEB equipment fulfils all requirements for personal protection as well as for necessary initial measures to secure an accident site and to contain damage. In accordance with the ADR, this includes:
eye protection equipment (e.g. safety glasses)
a pair of protective gloves
one portable lighting device
one high-visibility vest
an emergency escape mask (only required for dangerous goods classes 2.3 and 6.1)
The complete sets from the DENIOS range are available in Classic and Premium versions. The cases are sealed and provided with a list of contents so that they do not necessarily have to be opened during inspections.
