Influence of Sustainable Development Guidelines on Dangerous Goods Haulers

The development of Environmental Management Systems commenced as a response to global environmental issues and as recognition of awareness that sustainable development is a prerequisite for keeping the natural system in proper balance. Road transport of hazardous materials and goods is a very complex activity representing a major potential danger to people and the environment. For that reason, the introduction of certain system tools (standardization of operations), which are discussed in this article, represents a step forward to a safer and more effective operation for the carriers of dangerous goods.
