Welcome to MyDGSA

We are experienced Dangerous Goods Safety Advisors (DGSAs), providing clear guidance and training to anyone who works with dangerous goods.

Our services cater for those involved in the transporting, manufacturing, processing and other undertakings of hazardous substances.

Do you work with dangerous goods?

If you or your employees work with dangerous goods, you must comply with the mandatory regulations. You are required to know the products you are working with, the risks they pose and what to do if something goes wrong.

The dangerous goods regulations are extensive.

Working with hazardous materials can pose serious risks. For this reason, it is subject to thorough and comprehensive regulations. These regulations are notoriously challenging to navigate and difficult to understand.

Breaching the regulations is a serious offence.

Convictions are common and can be costly. Duty holders can be prosecuted for more than one offence within the same case.

In 2016:

  • the HSE’s conviction rate for dangerous goods offences was 94 percent;
  • the HSE’s conviction rate for dangerous-goods-related offences was 89 percent; and
  • in total, prosecutions led to fines of £16.7 million, with an average penalty of almost £19,000 per offence.

The United Nations Economic Commission for Europe recognises that the regulations are complex. It states that, in most cases, those working with dangerous goods must have DGSA support in place.

Dangerous goods transported by road in the UK typically fall under the domestic road regulations (CDG) but may also be affected by the European road regulations (ADR).

If you work in the transport sector, you have your own specific obligations regarding dangerous goods. We can help you interpret and understand them.
