  • About 90% of world trade is done by sea. Seaports are the nodes linking sea and land. The majority of goods are containerized. In ports, container terminals load and unload containers carrying (among others) dangerous goods. These shipments pose specific threats. As such, the release of packed or containerized dangerous goods during transport can have serious consequences.  It can negatively affect human beings, animals, materials, and the environment when not treated correctly. (Inter)national law, rules, regulations, working procedures, protective measures, and equipment are in place to minimize the risk of handling dangerous goods incorrectly. Regulations prevent the uncontrolled handling of dangerous goods, but it’s the human factor that makes a difference.

    Dangerous goods are classified according to their (potential) immediate chemical effects. The chemical effects are shown in a classification system. The dangerous goods are packed and labeled in such a way that the potential chemical effects can be recognized instantly.

    Before starting to work with dangerous goods, ask yourself some questions. What precautions should I take before opening a container? Is the container filled with gas? Do I recognize the labels on the container? How do I handle the dangerous goods inside? What can be the effects of placing certain types of dangerous goods close to another?

    Handling dangerous goods is all about safety. Sometimes the risks are invisible and the health effects of handling the goods incorrectly can be devastating
