UNO equipment is a filling unit that is used to pour hazardous substances, including fuels. They are also used to unload them. In order to work with UNO equipment, it is necessary to obtain the appropriate authorisations. The UNO course of the Transport Technical Inspection must be taken. During the courses, participants are taught about safety procedures, types and hazards that can be caused by loads, according to the ADR convention. The trainee at the training course will also learn what the responsibilities are as an equipment operator.  

A person who wants to perform filling and emptying activities in the future must, among other things: 

  • obtain competences, which are confirmed by the attainment of a pouring licence, 
  • have knowledge of the equipment that is used at the workplace, as well as knowledge of its technical parameters, 
  • be familiar with the technical and operational documentation, 
  • be able to prepare a safe place to work, 
  • know the principles of first aid,

UNO course

Various types of pourers and tanks are used in UNO operations. It is important that the operator is familiar with the equipment's documentation and technical parameters before starting the operation. All necessary skills and knowledge are acquired by the future operator during the filling machine training course. The certificate of qualification obtained after the course, completed with an exam, is issued indefinitely. However, the operator should remember to keep his knowledge up-to-date at all times. On the job site, it is very important to take care of safety on the job. It is important to remember all the procedures to follow when working with hazardous materials such as fuels.

Dangerous goods and their classification 

Dangerous goods are materials and articles the carriage of which is prohibited or authorised only under the conditions laid down in the European Agreement concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods ADR. The agreement was signed in 1957 and Poland joined it in 1975. The regulations are amended every two years. Dangerous goods can be transported in packages, in bulk or in tanks. They may be in solid, liquid or gaseous form.

Dangerous goods include, among others: 

  • petrol, 
  • certain solvents, 
  • paints, 
  • acids, 
  • certain liquids and gases which, because of their form, can only be transported in consignment units or tankers, 
  • lighters, 
  • batteries, 
  • fireworks. 

Radioactive waste is classified as a specific hazardous material. They are subject to special transport considerations. According to the ADR, dangerous goods, subdivided according to the type of hazard they pose, constitute 13 classes. 

Forms of technical supervision and testing periods 

The forms of technical supervision and the deadlines for testing are laid down in the Regulation of the Minister of Transport of 20 September 2006 on the technical supervision conditions to be met by equipment for filling and emptying transport tanks. 

Conditions for obtaining an occupancy permit 

An appliance for which a form of full or limited technical supervision has been established requires the operator to obtain a decision which will permit its operation. This is issued by the technical supervision authority. The first decision to allow operation is preceded by the Transport Technical Supervision inspector carrying out activities such as, among others: 

  • checking the completeness of documents, 
  • checking the condition and labelling of the equipment, 
  • conducting an acceptance test. 

Preparation for testing 

The person operating the device should prepare it properly for the control tests. In doing so, all safety rules must be observed and the information contained in the
