Organization of International Transport of Dangerous Goods by Road

SUMMARY Dangerous goods transport requires more precautionary measures than other goods because handling and possible accidents may endanger the lives of people, the environment and cause material damage. Therefore, ADR has been defined and classified hazardous substances through this final paper. As each substance has its own specific properties, this paper states specific safety measurements, packaging and marking and marking of the vehicle when transporting certain types of goods to reduce the risk of accidents. Due to the dangers that such goods bring with them, the personnel handling it must undergo special training and take on themselves a great deal of responsibility. From this it can be seen that knowledge of the properties and characteristics of dangerous substances is necessary for a safe transport process. Therefore, all participants must know and act in accordance with the legal regulations. Freight forwarders along carriers have major role in the international shipping of dangerous goods. They act as intermediary between the consignor and the consignee, regarding the task of organizing transport, obtaining the necessary permit and documentation for importing or exporting dangerous goods.

A Risk Assessment for Road Transportation of Dangerous Goods: A Routing Solution

A Risk Assessment for Road Transportation of Dangerous Goods: A Routing Solution

Traffic congestion and road accidents are closely related by an inverse relationship which can pose a potential dilemma for transport policy makers (Shefer and Rietveld, 1997). Shefer (1994) has proposed an inverse relationship between congestion and road fatalities, in which volume over capacity ratio was used to measure the level of congestion. A further study by Shefer and Rietveld (1997) investigated the link between congestion and safety on highways. Starting from the hypothesis previously used, they compared fatality rates throughout the day, and found that during peak hours the fatality rate is lower than that at other times of the day. Due to data unavailability they examined a proposed model, using a simulated dataset rather than real-world data. Quddus (2009) underlined that this studies tend to use an analytical approach and a weak proxy for traffic congestion, so as such, more robust empirical evidence, and a precise congestion measurement, are required. However, collecting data for multiple year to describe the relationship between traffic congestion and road accidents is an expensive and time consuming activity.

Interaction between the transport of dangerous goods and soft law

Interaction between the transport of dangerous goods and soft law

The term „soft law” was used for the first time in 1930 by Arnold McNair, and it has been since then brought constantly to the attention of the lawyers worldwide. According to other researchers, „soft law is a creature of the UN era, is a product of multilateral processes, institutions, even individuals operating in the international sphere”(Charleswort, 2012). Some of the recent debates come from the activity of the Legislative Council in France, which studied the question of the relevance of „droit souple” („soft law”) in 2013. This study was preceded by another study regarding the „droit mou” (“flexible law”), in 1991, „De la sécuritéjuridique”, in order to refer to the heterogeneity of the normative system in the so-called hard law (Richard et. al. 2013). The opposition between „hard law” and “soft law” reflects specific differences which can be summed up in the presence or absence of „coercion”.

Safety in Tunnels TRANSPORT OF DANGEROUS GOODS THROUGH ROAD TUNNELS TRANSPORT

Safety in Tunnels TRANSPORT OF DANGEROUS GOODS THROUGH ROAD TUNNELS TRANSPORT

4 ABSTRACT ITRD NUMBER: E110101 This report provides a comprehensive package covering both regulatory and technical issues concerning the transport of dangerous goods through road tunnels. The report proposes harmonised regulations to facilitate compliance by road transport operators and enforcement, thus improving safety. A quantitative risk assessment (QRA) model has been developed as part of the research which compares the risks of transporting dangerous goods through a tunnel to using an alternative route. A decision support model (DSM) was also developed as part of the research which allows decision makers to combine the results from the QRA with other relevant data (which are not of a scientific or technical nature but rather of a subjective or political nature). The DSM will help the decision-maker to determine the preferred route for the transport of dangerous goods or upgrades to existing tunnel infrastructure and other measures required to meet safety objectives. Finally, the report details the effectiveness of measures that can be taken to reduce the risks of incidents in tunnels.

ADR. Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road. A Guide For Business

Tunnels are categorised using the letters A to E. This categorisation is based on the assumption that there are three major dangers in tunnels: (i) explosions, (ii) release of toxic gas or volatile toxic liquid (iii) fires. The tunnel category, assigned by the competent authority (the NRA in Ireland) to a given road tunnel for the purpose of restricting the passage of transport units carrying dangerous goods, is indicated by means of road signs. Table 7 indicates the categories and the corresponding letter which appears on the approach to a tunnel; Figure 17 gives an example of a sign (in this case a category C, which appears, for example, on the approach to Dublin Port Tunnel).

Gibanje delavcev pri delu in notranji transport Transportne poti, dostopi, prehodi in druge poti, ki vodijo do odprtih ali zaprtih skladišč in drugih delovnih mest, na katerih se opravlja transportno delo ali po katerih prihajajo delavci na delo in odhajajo z dela, morajo biti redno vzdrţevane (Cinkarna Celje, d.d., 2012). Delavci se smejo gibati le v okviru zahtev svojih delovnih opravil. K temu prištevamo tudi prihod oziroma odhod na ali z dela in na malico. Transportne poti, dostopi, prehodi in druge poti iz prvega odstavka tega člena morajo biti v času zimskih razmer očiščeni ledu in snega ter posuti s posipnimi sredstvi. Sluţba za varstvo pri delu zagotavlja, da so te površine vedno očiščene in posute (Cinkarna Celje, 2012).

Risk Assessment of Transport for the Dangerous Goods in Austrian Road Tunnels

Risk Assessment of Transport for the Dangerous Goods in Austrian Road Tunnels

investigation delivered precise information about the UN number, the amount, type and destination of the dangerous goods transports which allows a much better allocation of the composition of DG transports to the accident scenarios of the risk model. In addition, the results revealed that in Austria the composition of the dangerous goods transported varies only slightly on different traffic routes and that these variations have only little influence on the risk faced by tunnel users. A standardized composition of DGs transports on Austria’s main roads could hence be defined as a basis for the risk analysis.

Research on Road Dangerous Goods Transport System Risk Evaluation Method: Based on Translation Corrected Entropy Weight Method

Research on Road Dangerous Goods Transport System Risk Evaluation Method: Based on Translation Corrected Entropy Weight Method

accidents number and translation-corrected Entropy Weight Method (EWM) to calculate coupling coordination degree (CCD), established a new RDGTSR evaluation approach. We introduced the information loss tolerance coefficient (ILTC) to control the data information loss in a reasonable range when we applied the translation-corrected EWM to obtain the weight, the strict mathematical proof and case study results show that the smaller of the ILTC, the final weight is closer to the weight without translation-corrected. Also the case study results show that three-factors coupling degree is higher than both two-factors and four-factors coupling degree, higher coupling degree means higher risk to cause dangerous goods transport accidents. Meanwhile, CCD is higher during January to June than the value during July to December, higher CCD means better development of road dangerous goods transport system, higher degree of system harmony and orderliness degree, and easy to cause a road dangerous goods transport accident.

Road transport of dangerous substances in Poland, their classification and labelling of vehicles

Road transport of dangerous substances in Poland, their classification and labelling of vehicles

Thereunder, in order to constantly increase awareness of dangerous materials transport users, as well as to reduce the number of and prevent uncontrolled release of these materials, questions of road transport in Poland are regu- lated by the European Agreement concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road. It is a European agreement on interna- tional transport of dangerous substances con- cluded on 30 September 1957 in Geneva under the auspices of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe. It came into force on 29 January 1968. The agreement itself is quite short and simple, whereas the key is defined in the second article which states that apart from excessively dangerous goods other dangerous goods can be transported internationally in road vehicles, under condition that it is performed in compliance with:

properties. Dangerous goods have special transport requirements to eliminate or minimise the risk of injuring people or damaging property and the environment. Requirements for air, rail, road and sea are not the same. Similarly, the requirements of one country may not necessarily be the same as another. This document identifies some of the differences and is intended as a guide for consignors (shippers) and the transport industry. This guide will also help manufacturers, packers, consignors and transport operators understand the requirements when transporting dangerous goods by more than one mode. This is particularly important in New Zealand where many goods have to travel by more than one mode, eg transport between the North and South Islands involves land transport and either air or sea transport.

DANGEROUS GOODS TRANSPORTATION: A

DANGEROUS GOODS TRANSPORTATION: A

Hellenic Institute of Transport / Centre for Research & Technology Hellas 2 Several thousands of trucks carrying dangerous goods circulate within European roads on daily basis. They utilise urban roads, rural roads, highways, tunnels and long bridges and in some cases they are not allowed in some of them. But the actual accident risk and impact when using secondary roads or other alternative ways is not calculated. In addition, when due to unforeseen events (traffic jams, accidents, etc.) they need to change route, they do not have any particular guidance on the safest alternative nor are consequences of road choice to the business chain and societal risk calculated. Thus, the management of risks involved in the transportation of dangerous goods has become a necessity. This process should include early recognition of potential problems (by on-board units and infrastructure based info; both in a dynamic manner), information about actual cargo and driver status, optimal routing and/or re-routing and monitoring and enforcement of dangerous goods movements within the transportation network.

TRANSPORT OF DANGEROUS GOODS

TRANSPORT OF DANGEROUS GOODS

2. The recommendations concerning the transport of dangerous goods are presented in the form of “Model Regulations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods”, which are presented as an annex to this document. The Model Regulations aim at presenting a basic scheme of provisions that will allow uniform development of national and international regulations governing the various modes of transport; yet they remain flexible enough to accommodate any special requirements that might have to be met. It is expected that governments, intergovernmental organizations and other international organizations, when revising or developing regulations for which they are responsible, will conform to the principles laid down in these Model Regulations, thus contributing to worldwide harmonization in this field. Furthermore, the new structure, format and content should be followed to the greatest extent possible in order to create a more user-friendly approach, to facilitate the work of enforcement bodies and to reduce the administrative burden. Although only a recommendation, the Model Regulations have been drafted in the mandatory sense (i.e., the word “shall” is employed throughout the text rather than “should”) in order to facilitate direct use of the Model Regulations as a basis for national and international transport regulations.
