Anyone give advice please on Class 3 hazardous?

What makes you say that Jason? I’m not aware of any exemption for containers less than 25 litres.

I’d have said it needed a minimum of ‘awareness’ training to carry it.

    You have to assume that the manufacturer knows the exact nature of the goods they’re shipping Ian and it’s up to them to classify it correctly. A lot of household paint is water based and isn’t classed as hazardous.

    That’s absolute bollocks.

    For a start you’re confusing Classes with Transport Categories, then you’re using the wrong load thresholds, then you’re referring to them as ‘LQ’ which is something completely different and to cap it all you’re ignoring the fact that even loads below the ‘small loads’ thresholds require the driver to be ‘awareness’ trained.

    Please tell me that you’re not really involved in the transport of hazardous goods.
