From the highest rated and most trusted online training company - since 2008.

This online training course covers the unique IATA HAZMAT Class 8 requirements for air transport of corrosive substances. Corrosive materials are highly reactive liquids and solids that damage living tissue. Commonly transported Class 8 dangerous goods include battery fluid, paint, mercury barometers, drain cleaner, and photographic processing chemicals.

This safety training covers how to use the IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations, shipper and operator responsibilities, and the proper methods to safely identify, document, package, mark, label, handle, and load individual classes of dangerous goods. It also contains specific IATA 8 training, which takes a step-by-step approach to identifying the specific requirements for proper handling and transport of Class 8 corrosives.

Training must be provided or verified for anyone who interacts with hazardous materials at any point in the shipping and transportation process.

Case Study: A shipper in the Middle East shipped dental supplies to Sydney, Australia through the postal system. Included in the dental supplies was approximately 100 mls of mercury. During air transport, the glass container holding the mercury broke and leaked into the cargo hold. Fortunately, it was discovered before it could cause significant damage to the skin of the aircraft. However, the leak required significant clean-up costs.
