Particularly strict regulations apply to the transport of hazardous materials. These regulations are ruled in the European agreement of international transportation of hazardous materials "ADR" (Accord européen relatif au transport international des marchandises dangereuses) and are valid for all contracting countries. In appendix 8.1.5 certain equipment for the protection of drivers and environment in the event of damage are required. These includes personal protective equipment (PPE) which the vehicle crew have to use in case of an accident in order to protect themselves against leaking substances or other dangers while they either stay close to the vehicle and limit the damage or leave the location of the accident for their own safety.
ATTENTION: there should be available a separate, appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for each Member on Board of a Transport Unit!
