For IMDG 2022 Edition, incorporating Amendment 41-22 of the IMDG Code

IMDG training online is critical because hazmat employees must handle and offer transportation for dangerous goods in ways that seek to prevent a dangerous goods incident from happening. This includes dangerous goods being transported by vessel. Such incidents can potentially threaten the integrity of the vessel, as well as the lives of employees, and incidents that occur at sea can also pose the serious threat of an environmental catastrophe that can immeasurably devastate sea life. Such incidents can be especially perilous if it occurs many miles away from the nearest shore, thereby highlighting the importance of IMDG training online.

The Necessity of IMDG Training Online

It is for these reasons that the International Maritime Organization (IMO) created the International Maritime Dangerous Goods (IMDG) Code. This organization lists the globally recognized regulations for the transportation of dangerous goods over the sea. This is to ensure the safety of those transporting the materials, as well as the safety of those who would be indirectly affected by them. The IMDG also serves to prevent pollution and the destabilization of marine environments around the world. As such, hazmat employees must undergo IMDG training to understand these regulations and then make every effort to comply with them. Not only is this vital to safety, but it is also required by international and Federal law.
