What are dangerous goods?

Dangerous Goods are articles or substances which are capable of posing a significant risk to health, safety or to property when transported by air. A glance in the garden shed or under the kitchen sink will reveal a wide array of things which are potentially Dangerous Goods. A few examples of the more common types of items would include pesticides, petrol, acids, aerosols and bleaches etc. You may feel comfortable storing these items in your home or transporting them in your car on the way home from the shop because you know where they are and the risks associated with them in that situation. You take precautions such as putting them in a high cupboard or a locked shed, as you dread the thought of someone swallowing or mishandling them. However, move them into the unfamiliar environment of an aircraft flying high above the earth where they may be subject to severe atmospheric pressure and temperature variations as well as vibrations and many items behave in an unpredictable manner.
