Vehicle Inspection for Transportation Permits
The Fire Brigade Services Act empowers municipal fire departments to make regulations controlling the transport of flammables and other dangerous goods in the municipality. This involves the issue of transportation permits subject to certain requirements such as the suitability of vehicles. The inspection of vehicles used to transport dangerous goods is undertaken by the local authority and permits, valid for a period of 12 months, are issued by the Chief Fire Officer or someone designated by him. In order to standardise this process, SANS 1157 - Transport of dangerous goods - Inspection requirements of road vehicles for the issue of municipal dangerous goods transport permits has been compiled to provide guidelines by providing an inspection checklist. This MiniCHART outlines the SANS 1557 requirements for different types of vehicles.

Understanding an SDS (Safety Data Sheet)
Previously known as a Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS), the Safety Data Sheet (SDS) is a legally required source of information on hazardous chemical substances (HSCs) used in the workplace. Regulation 9A of the OHS Regulations for Hazardous Chemical Substances obliges manufacturers, importers or suppliers to supply them free of charge. The format must comply with an internationally applied standard (adopted in SANS 11014) comprising of 16 numbered sections. Proper use and understanding of this document helps prevent accidents. This MiniCHART explains the content of the SDS. It also outlines the Globally Harmonised System (GHS) of classification and includes the pictograms and their meanings as well as the warning diamonds used for all modes of transport.
