Consultancy Service

Used by both local and national companies, Corridans Ltd is able to offer consultancy to the road haulage industry.

Dangerous Goods consultancy

Miss V Corridan is the company's DGSA - a Chemistry graduate who specialises in dangerous goods and is qualified to advise for road, sea and air transport.

 Under EU legislation, many companies who ship dangerous goods by road are required to appoint a Dangerous Goods Safety Adviser (DGSA). The DGSA has numerous responsibilities, but these include:

 

Monitoring compliance with the law

Advising on the transport of dangerous goods and relevant training requirements

Preparing an annual report of the employers’ activities

Monitoring a range of procedures and safety measures

Investigating and compiling reports on any accidents or emergencies

Advising on the potential security aspects of transport

 A DGSA can either be an employee, or externally appointed.

 

 

 

Petroleum Driver Passport (PDP)

 

Here at Corridans we are now able to offer the PDP course to tanker drivers at our training centre. The course is a half day course for the practical assessment and half a day course for the classroom based assessment

 

Petroleum Driver Passport (PDP) information

The passport is renewed on a five year cycle, but has an annual refresher requirement

The PDP scheme applies to drivers who load, offload and transport the following products

UN1202 - Gas oil or diesel fuel or heating oil, light

UN1203 - Gasoline or petrol motor spirit

UN1223 - Kerosene

UN1863 - Fuel, aviation and turbine engines

The PDP is an industry initiative, backed by the government to ensure all tanker drivers in the UK are trained and assessed to a consistent high standard.  The PDP scheme sets a benchmark in competency against which all road tanker drivers who are loading, transporting and offloading petroleum fuel products in road tankers in the UK are measured.  Competency is assessed both practically and in the classroom.

For terminal operators this provides a level of confidence that tanker drivers holding a valid PDP who enter the terminal boundary to load products, have achieved and demonstrated a minimum level of competency.

 

Interim PDP

For the interim PDP, you will be given classroom training covering key content from the Industry Training Standard. You will then take a written (multiple choice) assessment, set by SQA. There is also a practical assessment in the industry sub-sector most relevant to your workload.

 

Full PDP

To achieve the full PDP, you will undertake PDP training and a full written (multiple choice) assessment, set by SQA. You will take this alongside your five-yearly ADR renewal training and assessment. You will also take a practical assessment.

 

Refresher training

After 2014, you will have to take annual classroom refresher and an annual practical assessment for your PDP to remain valid. Your record of annual training and assessment will be held on SQA’s secure system.

Corridans are able to offer all of these qualifications and qualification routes.

How many first aiders of what type are required?

Every company needs to undertake their own risk assessment to determine the amount of people and equipment required in the workplace. This risk assessment should be renewed every 3 years in line with the qualification duration. The following is the HSE’s guide on suggested numbers of first-aid personnel to be available at all times when staff are at work.
