Basic Seminar on Hazardous Goods Tank Cars: An Essential Training for Safe Transportation

In modern freight transport, tank cars play a central role in the transportation of hazardous goods. These cars are specifically designed for the transport of liquid, gaseous, or even powdery substances and must meet numerous technical and legal requirements. To ensure safety in handling these specialized freight cars, thorough training is essential. The Hazardous Goods Tank Car seminar provides an in-depth introduction to the relevant topics.

Goals and Contents of the Seminar

The seminar is aimed at all those involved in hazardous goods transportation, from logistics staff and safety officers to technical personnel who work with tank cars. The goal is to develop a basic understanding of the design and safe handling of tank cars. The following core topics are covered:

  • Legal Framework: Introduction to the regulations for the transportation of dangerous goods by rail (RID) and the corresponding national regulations (GGVSEB). Application examples from the RID and the GGVSEB to clarify the regulations.
  • Technical Structure of a Tank Car: Detailed explanation of the construction and the various types of tank cars. Tank and equipment-specific details that are crucial for safety and functionality.
  • Substance-specific Particularities: Discussion of the different hazardous goods and their specific requirements for transportation in tank cars. Discussion on substance-specific risks and safety measures.
  • Maintenance and Inspections: Overview of the regularly required inspections, inspection intervals, and special tank codes. Special regulations and their application in everyday life.
  • Consideration of Additional Regulations: Integration of additional regulations like RSEB, GGAV, TRT, and relevant standards into practice.

Practical Deepening

For the practical application of the learned theory, we recommend booking our training tank car. This allows participants to directly verify what they have learned and gain practical experience. Direct interaction with a tank car provides a profound understanding of the subject matter and solidifies knowledge about the complex issue of hazardous goods transportation.

The Basic Seminar on Hazardous Goods Tank Cars is essential for everyone involved in the logistics chain of dangerous goods. The combination of theoretical foundations and practical experience provides a solid basis for ensuring safety in rail transportation of hazardous goods. By deepening expertise and learning specific skills, the risks associated with handling these special transport means are minimized.
