Dan has a proven track record of assisting a wide range of clients to identify the gaps in their health and safety compliance arrangements. Detailed reports accompany the inspection and audit and the client is left with clear and practical steps so that, where required, they can achieve a compliant state.

Dangerous Goods Audits and Inspections

If you offer dangerous goods for shipment then you need a DGSA. The Road Dangerous Goods regulations are changing to make this optional requirement, mandatory. This service provides an inspection, advice and provision of essential paperwork and guidance to ensure that you business is fully compliant.

ISO 9001:2015 Preparatory Inspection

ISO9001:2015 requires less paperwork but more joined-up thinking and knowledge streams within a company. Dan's experience with both the audit standards and quality systems enables him to identify strengths and opportunities within a company to ensure that all standards within the audit are either met or are being worked on at the time of the formal external audit.

DGSA (Dangerous Goods Safety Advisor)

DGSA's are required to be be appointed to assist a business in ensuring that it meets all of its legal responsibilities as either a Consignor or Transport Operator (Carrier). The DGSA service can be performed by a physical visit or remote access (telephone and e-mail) support. The type of service you require is identified by a preliminary inspection of your exposure to the Dangerous Goods legislation.

Frequently Asked Questions


Detail your services

How much do the courses cost? 

Dan Lee Training costs are inclusive of all accommodation, mileage and subsistence costs - therefore you pay a half day or flat fee depending on the costs incurred - example costs:

Local area (Devon) - half day £280 - Full day £400 - 500

UK- full day rate £650 - 750

Courses outside the UK will incur costs to cover travel, accommodation and a flat day rate for the days of travel to and from the venue.

Bespoke courses will cost a little more but that is identified at the initial discussion of your needs.


All courses offered are provided with Dan Lee Training Certificates. We can arrange for courses to be delivered to accredited award body standard.  All Aviation Security Courses are provided with a DfT/CAA approved certificate and training record

What makes you different from all the other training companies?

Dan Lee is a fully qualified trainer (Cert Ed) and is an award winning training designer. He prides himself on delivering quality training and never does 'death by powerpoint' type training. On the rare occasions that Dan Lee Training uses other trainers as associates he makes sure that they too can deliver the courses to the same standard. 

Why doesn't Dan Lee Training do accredited training?

In our history we have been accredited by the CIEH and IOSH but have found the value that these accreditations bring does not justify the costs of setting up and maintaining the administration. Dan Lee is qualified to write and deliver all training courses. You can rest assured that the content will meet the legal requirement that you need to comply with.

Why don't you do IATA Dangerous Goods by Air training?

It's not that we can't - we could -  but we don't agree with the prescriptive manner of how the course is required to be delivered by IATA and the UK's CAA. The IATA DG course does not allow for a qualified trainer to deliver the course in the manner that they deem appropriate. Until they do - Dan Lee Training won't put their name to their list. Remember, we don't do boring training.

ADR Transport Categories

The tricky subject of calculating when a vehicle load exceeds the ADR Transport Category Threshold Limits is explained within this short, instructive video. This is another example of how Dan Lee Training make their training content 'sticky' with the delegates that attend their courses. Providing them with an easy-to-use reminder of key learning points within their course ensures that they are consistent in their application of their knowledge and skills for their work role. Enjoy!
