Everyone is primarily responsible for his or her own safety. However, a person can also be made accountable for the safety of other people. The same holds true for the transportation and package of dangerous goods. Carrying dangerous goods in an aircraft, for instance, poses high risk due to atmospheric pressure, extreme temperature and vibrations. Because of this, inquiries like “Are the items [dangerous goods] your packing safe to fly?” must be first considered before transporting them. In this way, you will ascertain if your packing of dangerous goods does not pose a risk to you and your fellow passengers.
To achieve the goal of safety in transporting and packing of dangerous goods, the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) developed a tool or application called Can I pack that? – Dangerous Goods App aimed to provide information on what you can and cannot pack in your luggage. Moreover, when your luggage can be brought aboard, this application will guide you on how to do it safely.
This App is ideal for every traveller since all items are displayed together with details that notifies if you can take an item in your carry on, checked in luggage, or if you need prior permission from the airline. The information provided by the App is up – to – date and applicable to the regulation used by all airlines.
The Can I pack that? – Dangerous Goods App is downloadable in Apple App Store, Google Play and CASA Web App. Nevertheless, if you’re uncertain about any item on whether it may pose a safety risk, always check with the airline or airport staff.
