The Archers Need a DGSA
January 30, 2018
The discovery of some drums of dangerous chemicals in Ambridge means that Brian Aldridge and Adam Macy urgently need some dangerous goods advice. There is still speculation as to what the drums contain, but early speculation is around organochlorines or other toxic material. Environment Agency inspectors are already at Home Farm assessing the extent of the pollution, and Brian and Adam are extremely worried about the potential consequences.
One other unknown at the moment is whether the drums are full or empty – if empty could they be classified as UN 3509 Packagings, discarded, empty, uncleaned? Brian and Adam certainly need to seek some external dangerous goods consultancy, and either engage the services of one of the ten Peter East contracted Dangerous Goods Safety Advisers or enrol onto the next DGSA course at the end of February.
