Dangerous Goods Safety Group (UK) Ltd was formed in April 2019 by Paul and Lisa Horner. Dangerous Goods Safety Group provides a wealth of experience and knowledge gained from working in education, IATA, fast parcel and airline operations.

Dangerous Goods Safety Group provides an innovative approach to dangerous good transport safety and compliance through training, consultancy, risk assessments and compliance audits for all modes of transport.

Our unique and personalised approach to dangerous goods compliance for the complete supply chain ensures our customers are offered training that suits their needs. We continually adjust to regulatory changes and have an innovative approach for the benefit of our customers.

Before we deliver any form of training, we like to gauge the types of work needed by working with our clients. Our consultancy services do not just happen over the phone; we also like to visit your premises to help discuss ways of improving your business. We are happy to consult about any aspect of the supply chain and our experienced consultants can work with you to develop processes and procedures.
