    Does anyone know what the legal signage requirements are for a van carrying asbestos waste?

    I’ve had a poke around the HSE site and it needs orange markers front and rear. I guess that there will be some warning diamonds involved too so, if anyone knows what they should look like, I would be duly grateful.

    Thanks.

    The van driver should know this as he should hold a hazmat license. Orange placard is only to indicate the vehicle is carrying haz cargo above the necessary limits, may also require the black/white striped diamond.

    Thanks lads.

    Unfortunately for me Graeme the enquiry came from a leasing company who specifically forbids their subcontractors from contacting their customers.

    I’ve been through loads of websites, and it’s a minefield. Worse than Chapter 8.

    The only asbestos warning that I can find is the yellow triangle with an exclamation mark. What I don’t know is whether it needs the orange decals with the UN code for asbestos in, together with emergency contact number and other guff.

    Any idea where I can find a picture of the ADR Category 9 symbol?

    Thanks for the call George.

    What you told me, plus what I’d read, has convinced me that I want bugger all to do with it. The potential liability in getting it wrong is not something I care to think about.

    I’ll follow customer instructions, but they’re gonna have to tell me what they want.
