Chapter 1.3 or ADR and IMDG codes require all personnel engaged with dangerous goods freight to receive either General Awareness of Function Specific Training to ensure that every knows how to maintain their legal responsibilities to ensure the safety in the transport of dangerous goods. Call or email Dan to discuss your needs
The problem with standard DGSA training courses is that they cram too much information into 4 days the week prior to the national exam. Dan Lee Training offers an alternative. Two hours of on-line coaching per week for 16 weeks leading up to the exam date. The course is supported by detailed explanatory guidance to each section of ADR and is replete with exercises and mock questions. email Dan to discuss your DGSA training need.
The UK's Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 requires companies to have a competent person to assist with the management of their health and safety arrangements. Dan has considerable experience in working with businesses to ensure that health and safety isn't just in the hands of one person - health and safety is everyone's responsibility and Dan's coaching and mentoring style ensures that all managers understand this concept and have the necessary skills and knowledge to apply it to their daily roles.
Following 22 years of delivering this training Dan Lee Training has finally decided to stop doing so as of 31.12.23.
Despite priding himself on delivering a high-quality product the amount of revenue it generated when balanced against the cost of registering, undertaking the CAA's QAF and CPD programme showed this not to be a cost-effective training provision. I'm sad to say goodbye to it - but I have to be realistic and use my time more productively rather than waste it by jumping through unnecessary administrative and quality themed hoops that are not geared towards small businesses.
Fire Safety, Manual Handling, Risk Assessment, COSSH awareness and assessment, incident investigation, Food safety, Directing and Managing Safety, Permit to Work and Drug and Alcohol testing are just some of the training courses that Dan has delivered to his clients to ensure that they meet their safety compliance training needs. All training offered follows the Dan Lee Training ethos - we don't do boring!

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.
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.
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.
Dan Lee provides this service to clients who have retained his knowledge, skills and expertise to ensure that their health and safety responsibilities are met. Dan fully endorses the HSE approach that health and safety in the workplace is everyone's responsibility and works with all levels of staff to ensure that this message is clearly understood and properly applied.
Risk assessments, workplace fire safety inspections of creation of a Fire Safety Management file that is fully compliant to the requirements of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (RRO) are provided to Dan Lee's client base. Many businesses don't know that they are not compliant until they receive a visit from the fire safety enforcement officers - by which time it will be too late. Dan Lee can conduct a gap analysis of your fire safety needs and help you fill those gaps until you are fully compliant.
Dan's background saw him fulfil the role of Police Trainer, and then Training Manager with Harrods, TNT Express and United Airlines. Fully qualified in training matters (Operations, Sales and Management) Dan can assist you with identifying what training must be done and devising a plan to help you achieve it.

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, IOSH and the DfT/CAAbut 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.
This film examines the requirements of an overpack within the road, sea and air dangerous goods regulations. It's free to view!
A different venture for the type of videos I usually produce. This one was specific to one of my clients and I thought it's good enough for everyone else. It covers all the legal requirements that safe instruction in the use of this warehouse equipment requires.
A short video to use to explain to your staff why we have the Dangerous Goods Codes and Regulations. Great to use in Induction or as a preparation for their DG Awareness training!
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!
