Online Training Certification Course Shipping Radioactive Materials by Air
from the highest rated and most trusted online training company - since 2008.
Shipping radioactive materials, even in small quantities, requires a level of care above and beyond standard precautions for hazardous goods. This Class 7 dangerous goods training course covers the specific requirements for handling and transporting radioactive material.
Radioactive material is used in numerous applications, including the production of medicine, smoke detectors, plastic, and cell phones. This online training course details important safety measures for transporting radioactive materials by air. These safety measures protect workers, the public, and the environment from the risk of accidental exposure to radioactive materials.
What are the governing regulations? The IATA Class 7 Dangerous Goods Regulations govern air shipment of radioactive materials, radiopharmaceuticals, and radioisotopes. This online certification course satisfies all carrier requirements for proof of IATA class 7 training, including FedEx and UPS.
Who must take this training? Anyone involved in the handling, loading, or acceptance of Class 7 air freight should undergo IATA certified safety training. This includes all personnel identified in Table 1.5 A of the IATA DGR, such as airline acceptance staff, shippers, packers, and freight forwarders; cargo training and development specialists; ground handling and load control staff involved in the cargo chain; regulatory compliance specialists; operations and station managers; and security screeners.
Case Study: In 1997, 115 passengers aboard a KLM Royal Dutch Airlines flight were exposed to nuclear radiation. The exposure was due to a leak from radioactive technetium generators, which are used in medical equipment. The equipment had not been properly packed according to transport officials. The airline informed the passengers of the incident due to the negligible health risk the exposure posed. Aviation officials launched an investigation in response to the airline’s packing failure, and KLM ceased transport of dangerous goods in the interim. As a result of the exposure, KLM received additional restrictions on its license to transport dangerous materials.
I liked the fact that you changed narrators from time to time. A few of the pictures I thought were misplaced for the topic, and more example pictures to look at would be nice. And maybe some interaction of labeling a box using mouse moved icons or something like that. But hey good job otherwise! Willie C
I really appreciate this course. I needed to send an item but realized my training recently expired. Thank you and i'll use it in 2 years. Also thank you for a comprehensive test. Michael K
The course was very thorough and covered all aspects of the regulations. I liked that the references to the DGR were included. Marking and labeling can be tricky and I think it might be beneficial to include some pictures of correctly marked and labeled packages. Liza K
Very good course. Exam was somewhat different than the practice questions. This gave me a few difficulties. The Exam, however, was completely fair. Russell H
