About this session

This feature session will be hosted by two highly experienced industry experts from The Hazchem Network*; Robert Symes, Managing Director and Nada Marinovic, Network Director. Both have many years’ experience in the transportation of hazardous goods providing day to day support and guidance to the networks 60 members, their customers and suppliers ensuring current regulations are maintained.

We anticipate this interactive session will go some way to dispelling the myths around Limited Quantity (LQ) transportation through a detailed insight to the current regulations and the impact on all in the supply chain. You will leave this session with clarity on how to recognise, package and manage your Limited Quantity consignments, as well as receiving direction to relevant resources to check your products LQ status ahead of organising shipping or delivery.

The second topic in this session will focus on highlighting the complex regulatory framework for dangerous substance storage and warehousing. Robert and Nada will provide expert guidance in the Control of Major Accident Hazards (COMAH) linking the audience to the essential considerations when storing and warehousing dangerous goods. Exact COMAH requirements will differ according to the size of operation, however having an understanding there is a strict framework for storage and distribution activities will assist with your compliance.

*The Hazchem Network is the only pallet and parcel network dedicated to chemicals and is backed by the biggest names in UK hazardous goods transportation. The network offers a simple pricing structure, next day delivery and 100% assurance for the safe delivery of dangerous goods in the UK and Europe.

Speaker Bio

Nada’s career spans four decades, all which has been spent within the chemical industry service provision sector. Following Nada’s first year of work in a quality control laboratory, she was accepted on to an apprenticeship scheme for a national chemical distributor. This major career step allowed learning in all aspects of the industry, culminating in Nada managing a warehouse and transport operation in Oldbury in the Black Country, whilst still in her teens. Also during this period Nada studied through the Open University achieving a BSc in Chemical Engineering.

Since then Nada has worked for three specialist third party ADR & COMAH LSP’s including a five year stint working for a toll manufacturer. Nada’s background in operational and commercial roles within this specialist sector culminated in her joining the senior team at The Hazchem Network Ltd in early 2012. Nada says she enjoys this role immensely, especially since the move to the new Hub at Hinckley which offers exciting new challenges to the membership and their customers in the packaged chemical and associated Industries.
