About this Session

Transport of Dangerous Goods – recent challenges and future advances including electronic dangerous goods

Hosted by Caroline Raine, Technical Director at Ricardo with support from industry, government and trade associations

COVID introduced many challenges for the transport industry including a shortage of drivers as well as the need to consider being a paperless process. This discussion panel will discuss some of those challenges and discuss how we can move forward with technology advances to ensure that we continue to transport dangerous goods safely

Joining DfT’s Dangerous Goods team back in September 2021, Beth is the policy lead for ADR training, and has been working on a range of projects from the remote delivery of ADR driver training to reviewing the Dangerous Goods Safety Advisor regime here in the UK. Prior to this, Beth spent two years working in various roles across another public body to deliver funding to support strategic projects. Beth also has practical experience of working in Pharmacy, along with a MSc in Business Management.
