All substances and objects containing radioactive materials belong to dangerous goods class 7. The best-known examples of this class are technetium, cobalt and cesium. The handling of radioactive substances plays an important role in the everyday work of many companies. For example, radioactive substances are used in healthcare for diagnosis and therapy, in non-destructive material testing and in many areas of research. Used radioisotopes are manifold just like the guidelines of the dangerous goods law, which are particularly extensive in the area of class 7 and require a special qualification of the dangerous goods officer. Thus, in particular in the area of classification, packaging, labeling and the transport document, a number of special regulations come into play, which the dangerous goods officer must know and implement.

A dangerous goods officer is usually required for the transport of Class 7 dangerous goods (radioactive materials). According to international and national regulations, companies transporting radioactive materials must appoint a specially trained dangerous goods officer.
The annual report is mandatory according to the dangerous goods regulation and is instated annually by the dangerous goods safety advisor. It includes all matters of the dangerous goods safety advisor’s activity such as training, accidents, special incidents as well as the transported quantity of dangerous goods.
A dangerous goods advisor for Class 7 (radioactive materials) requires special training to acquire basic knowledge of radioactive materials. This includes properties, classification, and identification of radioactive materials. The training also provides guidelines and regulations for the safe packaging, labeling, and marking of radioactive materials.
The dangerous goods advisor also learns the requirements for the safe transport of radioactive materials by road, rail, water, or air. Radiation protection measures are covered to protect against ionizing radiation and the safety precautions required when handling radioactive materials are taught.
In addition to the basics of dangerous goods law, the practical training of employees is important. We train directly at the carrier, e.g. truck. Because only the personal exchange together with all persons involved in the transport, such as shipper, driver and dispatcher, makes the training effective.
In addition, for drivers who fall under the "1000 point regulation", the legally required training according to ADR is carried out.
