IATA Takes Care of Transportation of Dangerous Goods through Airway

By Tory Black Subscribe to RSS | February 29th 2012 | Views:

We are well aware of the fact that people all over the world are using several hazardous materials in their daily lives. Actually, these hazardous materials are mixed with other materials in order to make them fit to be used by humans. Thus, there has been a continuous increase in the use of these materials and as a result there has been an increase in the transportation of hazardous goods from one place to another. This transportation from one place to another poses a great threat to the environment and human beings. Hazardous materials are transported through roadways, waterways and airways. Further, while transporting harmful goods through these routes it is mandatory to follow the rules and regulations laid by the organizations such as Department of Transportation or DOT for roadways, International Maritime Organization or IMO for waterways and International Air Transport Association or IATA for airways.

IATA has laid down very strict rules and regulations and the company that wishes to transport Dangerous Goods through airways has to abide by them compulsorily. This is so because it is very risky to transport such materials via airways. In order to transport hazardous materials from one destination to another via airways, innumerable processes have to be followed. In the first step all the materials are checked and verified by the security personnel to see whether they are damaged or not. Then the next step is to pack the checked materials in special containers based on the instructions given by IATA. These processes are undertaken in the presence of security officers and hazardous materials consultants.

These Dangerous Goods are placed in special containers in order to ensure that even if there are any reactions in these goods they will not be able to come out easily and cause destruction. Special containers can be considered as a safety measure to protect the nature and mankind. In fact, in order to ensure more protection according to the rules and regulations lay down by the International Air Transport Association, special teams of trained officials who are expert in handling such goods should be present in the aircraft carrying harmful goods. The main objective behind doing this is to safeguard human beings, property and the environment.

It is to be noted that handling harmful goods is not an easy job and it is necessary for the individuals to undergo proper IATA training programs provided by international organizations if they want to do a job that involves dealing with Dangerous Goods.
