IMDG 1: Introduction, General Provisions, and Classifications
Shipping dangerous goods presents safety issues that must be addressed. The International Maritime Dangerous Goods (IMDG) Code was developed to help ensure dangerous goods are transported safely by sea. Its regulations provide the individuals who handle and ship dangerous goods with the information they need to do so safely. This course begins with an introduction to the IMDG Code, including its origins, purpose, and enforcement and training requirements. In the United States, the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) develops and enforces regulations for the safe transport of dangerous materials. The connection between the two sets of regulations will be explained. A physical description of the IMDG Code is given, as well as instruction on how to access and use the information it contains to determine if dangerous goods are regulated by IMDG and PHMSA and how to ship them properly.

IMDG 4: Loading, Unloading, and Offering Dangerous Goods
As cargo makes its way to its destination, the cargo transport unit (CTU) it's packed in and the packages themselves are subjected to a variety of forces that can damage them. This is true of all types of goods, but is of particular concern when shipping dangerous goods. As such, dangerous goods are packed for transport in a manner meant to protect human health and safety, property, and the environment. Taking certain precautions, such as performing prepacking inspections and following stowage and segregation requirements, can help prevent incompatible dangerous goods from coming into contact during shipping – avoiding potentially disastrous results. Knowing how to properly pack, secure, load, and unload the cargo from a CTU will also help reduce the risks presented by dangerous goods to those who offer them. In this course you'll explore the precautions, requirements, and best practices used within the transport and shipping industries to improve safe transport and to minimize risks associated with dangerous goods. This course was developed with subject matter support provided by EnSafe Inc., a global professional services company focusing on engineering, environment, health and safety, and information technology.
