Traxion DGSA (Dangerous Goods Safety Adviser)

All companies who are involved in the transport or packing of Dangerous Goods being transported by road are legally required to have the advice of a qualified DGSA.
Traxion can provide this service to clients throughout the North West, to ensure that you are compliant with ADR Regulations. Our qualified adviser is Craig Wilson. He’s based in Preston, Lancashire and you can find his credentials on the list of approved advisers on the Government website here.

A DGSA’s role is to advise the company on correct carriage of Dangerous Goods, monitor compliance with the ADR regulations and produce an annual report. They also need to monitor the companies relevant practices and procedures. A full outline of a DGSA’s responsibilities can be found in section 1.8.3 of the ADR regulations.

Traxion can provide a qualified Dangerous Goods Safety Adviser for companies that don’t need to employ one full-time. Some companies may only need some very basic guidance, whilst others may need a lot more support and we can offer flexible pricing plans on a case by case basis.

Our external DGSA service includes:

  • Confirmation that you have appointed a qualified DGSA, should clients or the competent authority request proof
  • An initial audit to identify any gaps in compliance and recommendations on how to improve
  • Guidance on drafting necessary practices and procedures
  • Ongoing advise and support
  • An Annual Report as specified in ADR
