Driver training for carriers
The driver training package was developed by ISOPA and the diisocyanates transportation companies to ensure, when properly implemented, the safe loading, transportation and unloading of Isocyanates. The package is designed to increase the level of safety awareness of the drivers and those active in the logistics supply chain. It contains information drivers need in their day-to-day work to transport bulk diisocyanates including discharge methods. It is valid for 3 years.
The programme is in line with the chemical industry's programme of Responsible Care® .
The ISOPA driver training package was first developed in 2000 and over 8 000 drivers have been trained since then. The revision of this package is based on the experiences from trainers, hauliers and ISOPA members using the first training package.
The content of this training package is focused on the information the drivers need in their day-to-day work to transport bulk diisocyanates including discharge methods. Excluded from this revision is information on legislation; Responsible Care® is briefly referred to.
This package should be used by dedicated trainers who have undergone a training session organized by one of the Member Companies.
Next trainer session:
- 14 July 16H ->18H30 – virtual session in German.
- 15 July 12H ->14H30 – virtual session in English
If interested please contact ISOPA .
The final step in the programme is the receipt of the attendance list by ISOPA. This will trigger the preparation and dispatch of signed Driver Training cards for drivers who have successfully completed the programme. These are valid for 3 years.
The package contains the required attendance list (see 'Procedure' below), a slideshow of 47 slides, speaker's notes for the trainers and a questionaire file.

The questionnaire is a multiple choice test. There are 46 questions, of which the trainer can select 20 relevant questions dependent on the haulier, mode of transport, and type of diisocyanate. Mark the selected questions in column A and use the counter in cell A3 to ensure you have 20 questions. Use the filter button in cell A3 to retrieve the final questionnaire.
The questionnaire is in columns B-I (print pages 1-2). Trainers should contact ISOPA to obtain the link of the answers.
Column O contains a reference to where in the slide package the specific question is dealt with.
Procedure to obtain Driver Training Cards:
 For each session: make sure all attendants are listed on the attendance list, print the list
and obtain their signatures; the trainer should also sign the list.
 After the test, leave those who passed on the list, remove the others and add the score.
