HAZMAT Driver Awareness

Discussion in 'RLC' started by Denzh, Nov 8, 2011.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Can anyone point me in the right direction where in JSP 800 the details of the requirements & validity of the HAZMAT driver awareness course is ?
     
  2. IIRC the HAZMAT aware is not a course, but just being informed that you are carrying explosives that are under the threshold for full HAZMAT precautions and you know what to do in the event of an accident or fire.
     
  3. All in the DG website on the intranet no need to trawl through the JSP. It's just a powerpoint presentation followed by a signature on your 600.
     
  4. What I think you may be referring to is Dangerous Goods Awareness Training and that is completed on the first day of GS Module 1
     
  5. You could always call the SO2 HAZMAT at Army HQ (94393 x6604). He might know.
     
  6. To digress slightly if no one objects.

    Can someone remind me what the different colour flags denote in military vehicle convoys, please? There are Red, green, and Yellow, and blue, are there any others and what do they mean.

    Can anyone remember seeing the convoys from somewhere near Tadley up to Scotland, they usually ran under cover of darkness.
     
  7. A driver should be on this like a tramp on chips.

  8. Wah shield on.

    Blue - Lead vehicle in packet
    Green - Rear Vehicle in packet
    Yellow - Broken down needing recovery

    Red - Female Troopy on the rag.
     
  9. Thank you.
     
  10. Yes, I used to see them quite often. They weren't always during the hours of darkness either, though they used to time them to avoid busy periods at the bottlenecks. It was much better once the Haul Road was built.
     
  11. Is Tadley Hall still open?
     
  12. ALl HAZMAT stuff is in JSP 800 vol 4b! All major units should have a HAZMAT instructor to deal with the questions!
