Required Transport Documents

For each transport unit that carries out the transport of dangerous goods, the documents that, according to the ADR Agreement, must be present in the vehicle are the transport document, written instructions regarding the transported dangerous goods, the driver’s certificate of professional training, and the certificate of vehicle approval (if required).

In case of accident

  1. The written instructions in the driver’s possession must be handed over to emergency responders on behalf of the transporter.
  2. All basic equipment must be deployed.
  3. Immediately call the Police and the Emergency Aid Center (the authorities will decide everything).
  4. Deploy the special fire extinguishers to contain potential conflagrations.
  5. If the victim is unconscious and not breathing, give them mouth-to-mouth resuscitation if you know how. Toxic substances may enter the human body.
  6. In the presence of multiple injured parties who are conscious, first ask for help for the most severely injured person and then deal with the others.
