Information:

This guidance note assists vehicle owners, prime contractors and drivers transporting dangerous goods on Western Australian roads to meet their obligations regarding the provision of safety equipment.
When placard loads of dangerous goods are transported by road, certain personal protective equipment (PPE) and other safety equipment are required by the Dangerous Goods Safety (Road and Rail Transport of Non-explosives) Regulations 2007 and Australian Dangerous Goods Code, Seventh Edition (ADG7). This is to ensure that, in the event of an accident or incident, the personnel transporting the dangerous goods have a reasonable degree of protection and, if practicable and safe to do so, can effectively respond to either control the situation or ameliorate the effects while waiting for the arrival of emergency services or the approved emergency responder.
