What is a Dangerous Good?

A dangerous good is defined as a good that is capable of causing physical or environmental harm if used or possessed improperly. Some common examples of dangerous goods include explosives, flammable liquids, and hazardous materials.

It is important to be aware of the safety precautions that must be taken when transporting or using a dangerous good. Some of the most common dangerous goods that must be stored in specific ways include:

Chemicals: Chemicals must be kept in a safe container that is made to guard against physical harm and leaks.

Radioactive materials: Radioactive materials must be kept in a safe container that is protected from the outside elements.

Explosives: The safest way to keep explosives safe from physical harm and leaking is to keep them in a container that is both secure and leak-proof.

If you have any of the following warning signs while storing dangerous goods, please take appropriate precautions to safely store them:

-You have not received written notification from your supplier that the goods are safe to store.

-The goods are in an unstable condition, such as being swollen or leaking.

-The goods may be dangerous if they are mishandled.

-The goods may be dangerous if they are exposed to the environment.

If you notice any of these warning signs, please do not store the goods and contact your supplier immediately.

What if dangerous goods aren’t stored properly?

If dangerous goods are not stored properly, they can cause a lot of damage. Dangerous goods can cause fires, explosions, and even death. If you are transporting dangerous goods, it is important that you follow all the safety guidelines that are provided by the government. 

A dangerous goods cargo must be packaged and marked in a way that allows for its safe transportation, storage, and handling. The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) regulates the transportation of dangerous goods. The TDGR define a dangerous goods as any material, device, or item that is not a simple chemical, biological, or radioactive substance but that could cause serious injury or death if transported in an aircraft, train, vessel, or motor vehicle.
