The Federal Road Safety Corps, FRSC has said that the United Nations Agreement Concerning International Transport of Dangerous Goods by Road, ADR will ensure safe transportation of commodities in the country.
The corps’ Public Education Officer, Bisi Kazeem, said this in a statement in Abuja.
He said that Corps Marshal, Boboye Oyeyemi, was attending the Conference of Contracting Parties to the 1957 Agreement in Geneva, where an amendment to the agreement was carried out.
Kazeem expressed dismay that far too many accidents involving the transportation of dangerous goods still occurred in countries across the world.
He said that with the UN agreement, the risks of such accidents would be reduced.
Kazeem said the development had signaled increasing global demand for solutions for the safe transportation of dangerous goods.
