Truck and Track Spring 2023

Truck and Track Spring 2023 58 DANGEROUS GOODS Almost a full house for the BADGP AGM Springtime brings more daylight hours, warmer temperatures, and rejuvenation. For us at Labeline it is when the exhibition and events season is upon us. Labeline was founded over 30 years ago and since then the company’s MD, Keith Kingham, has used industry events and seminars to successfully promote Labeline International around the world. We still find that attending events as an exhibitor is one of the most effective ways of meeting some of Labeline’s thousands of customers, and introducing our solutions to new contacts. In 2023, there seems to be more opportunities than ever for dangerous goods (DG) compliance to be showcased to industry. The first of these was the 13th AGM and Industry Seminar hosted by the British Association of Dangerous Goods Professionals (BADGP) at the beginning of March. Despite the wintery conditions making travelling quite a challenge for many, the forum was very well attended. Labeline was involved with BADGP from the very start, and has remained a very strong supporter of the association ever since. After the formal AGM, members and delegates were treated to some excellent and interesting presentations in a high-quality agenda which included a lot of discussion on alternative fuels - of course, lithium batteries and the risks that they pose were at the forefront. The use of hydrogen fuel was championed as a safer and more environmentally friendly option when compared to those that are more commonly used. Many of the long-held myths relating to the safety, cost and environmental impact of using hydrogen were debunked by chemists and industry professionals during various presentations throughout the day. It’s Showtime! Labeline’s Compliance Manager Richard Shreeve Richard Shreeve, Labeline’s Compliance Manager, and the Labeline team look forward to meeting our customers and industry colleagues at upcoming events Labeline’s Gloria O’Connell and Richard Shreeve
