Handling of Dangerous Goods

Handling of Dangerous Goods in aviation refers to the strict and specialized procedures involved in managing hazardous materials that are transported by air. This term encompasses a wide range of substances that pose various risks, such as flammability, toxicity, radioactivity, or corrosivity, and therefore require careful handling to ensure the safety of passengers, crew, and the environment. The International Air Transport Association (IATA) provides detailed regulations and guidelines, known as the Dangerous Goods Regulations (DGR), to standardize the safe transport of these materials globally.

The process of handling dangerous goods in aviation is multifaceted, involving accurate classification, packaging, labeling, documentation, and declaration of these items. It is crucial that all parties involved in air transport, including airlines, ground handlers, and freight forwarders, adhere to these regulations. Non-compliance can lead to severe penalties and, more importantly, compromise safety.

Efficient and safe handling of dangerous goods is a critical aspect of aviation logistics and security. It requires thorough training for all personnel involved, as well as robust systems to ensure that the specific requirements for handling each type of dangerous good are met. By leveraging technology, the aviation industry can enhance its capabilities in managing these materials, reinforcing overall safety and compliance.
