Packaging hazards
• If packaging is unsuitable, there is a high potential for
spills
• If packaging is damaged then the contents can spill,
presenting a serious health risk to anyone who is
exposed
• First responders need to be able to see the label and
identify the types of dangerous goods present before
taking any action to minimise any risk
• Correct emergency information panel (EIP) ensures
that correct emergency response personnel are
contacted

A prime contractor (or driver) must not transport
