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. 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.

IMDG 2: Dangerous Goods List, Special Provisions and Exceptions

The International Maritime Dangerous Goods (IMDG) Code is the recognized code of practice for the safe carriage of dangerous goods by sea. Manufacturers, packagers, shippers, stowers, carriers, and others involved throughout the supply chain must adhere to the provisions in the IMDG Code when dealing with cargo to be transported all or in part by ship. The IMDG Code contains the Dangerous Goods List, a list of the dangerous goods most commonly carried by sea. The list covers, as far as practicable, all dangerous substances of commercial importance. This course will introduce you to the IMDG Code Dangerous Goods List, and will help acquaint you with IMDG Code packing and tank provisions for dangerous goods containers. This IMDG 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.

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.
  • identify what to check during a prepacking inspection of a CTU
  • identify how to stabilize and pack a CTU
  • match each method to when it should be used to prevent cargo from moving during transport
  • recognize the best practices to use to achieve a stable load within a CTU
  • use the segregation table to determine the segregation requirements for given cargo
  • recognize how to properly load a CTU
  • identify where vessel operators can find information about stowing dangerous goods cargo in or on a ship
