When a driver is making more than
one delivery of dangerous goods and
transporting them by a tank truck, tank
trailer or individual gas cylinders, the
change in quantity of dangerous goods
must be shown on the shipping document.
This must be done after each delivery.
Safety marks, when needed, will be
supplied by the consignor. A driver who
transports dangerous goods has the
responsibility to make sure the vehicle has
all the proper safety marks, placards, or
orange panels on it before it is loaded. The
safety marks must be placed on each side
and each end of a trailer or transport unit.
Placards and panels may be moved to
the front of the lead vehicle so the safety
marks are visible. The safety marks must
stay on the vehicle or large container
until no hazard exists. This means the
dangerous goods have been unloaded
and the container or vehicle cleaned and
purged of all residues of dangerous goods.
If the dangerous goods placards and
panels are lost, damaged, or defaced
during the trip, the carrier must replace
| NOTE: Every vehicle used to carry
Class 1 material, Explosives, must carry
a document signed by the owner or the
person leasing the vehicle, indicating the
name of the driver(s) authorized by them
to operate or accompany the vehicle.
