What are considered dangerous goods for Transportation?
When it comes to shipping products, there are many regulations that must be followed to ensure the safety of the shipment and everyone involved in the transportation process. One of the most critical factors to consider is the dangerous goods classification
Dangerous goods are items or substances that can harm people or the environment. These goods are classified based on their hazardous properties, such as flammability, toxicity, corrosiveness, and more. The classification system is used to help identify the level of danger associated with each item and determine how to handle it properly during transport.
There are nine classes of dangerous goods recognised by the United Nations. Here is a breakdown of each class and what items are typically included in them:
Class 1: Explosives
Explosives are items or substances that can explode or cause a sudden release of gas or heat. Examples include fireworks, ammunition, and certain chemicals used in manufacturing.
Class 2: Gases
Gases are substances that are in a gaseous state at normal room temperature and pressure. This class includes compressed gases, liquefied gases, and dissolved gases. Examples of items in this class include propane, butane, and helium.
Class 3: Flammable Liquids
Flammable liquids are substances that can easily catch fire or ignite. Examples include gasoline, diesel fuel, and alcohol.
Class 4: Flammable Solids
Flammable solids are substances that can catch fire easily and burn quickly. Examples include matches, flares, and certain chemicals used in manufacturing.
Class 5: Oxidizing Substances and Organic Peroxides
Oxidizing substances and organic peroxides are items or substances that can react with other substances and release oxygen. This class includes items such as hydrogen peroxide, sodium chlorate, and certain cleaning chemicals.
Class 6: Toxic and Infectious Substances
Toxic and infectious substances are items or substances that can cause harm or illness to people or animals. Examples include pesticides, certain chemicals used in manufacturing, and certain medical products.
Class 7: Radioactive Materials
Radioactive materials are items or substances that emit radiation. Examples include certain medical products and items used in the nuclear industry.
Class 8: Corrosive Substances
Corrosive substances are items or substances that can cause damage to other materials through chemical reaction. Examples include battery acid, certain cleaning chemicals, and certain chemicals used in manufacturing.
Class 9: Miscellaneous Dangerous Goods
Miscellaneous dangerous goods are items or substances that don’t fit into any of the other classes. Examples include items that can create a dangerous reaction when mixed, such as certain chemicals used in manufacturing.
