Training: Basic course by the Port of Venice providing mandatory baseline training on dangerous goods
The Venice Port Authority mandated CFLI to establish a Basic course on how to handle dangerous goods, from transport to stowage.
This training is mandatory pursuant to IMDG Code 34 – 2008 that entered in force on 01/01/2010 both nationally and internationally.
It introduces the mandatory training of all shore-side staff involved in activities and operations associated to maritime and multimodal shipment.
As instructed by the General Command of the Harbourmasters (the competent authority on this matter, directly involved in monitoring the implementation of the Code), the course includes a presentation of the text of the code and its regulations, and a general overview of dangerous goods and how they should be handled.
All the port workers involved are hosted by the Port Authority in the facility known as “Spazio Porto” (former church of Santa Marta in Venice) and are encouraged to ask questions and participate actively in open discussions with the teachers.
