Transportation of Dangerous Goods (TDG) training is essential for a wide range of businesses and industries. Due to the environmental and physical risks associated, it’s imperative that precautionary measures be taken during the transportation of dangerous materials.

The Canadian Transportation of Dangerous Goods Act ensures that employee and public safety is maintained by outlining strict regulations that are to be followed during the transportation of:

  • Explosives 

  • Gases 

  • Flammable Liquids 

  • Flammable Solids  

  • Oxidizing Substances 

  • Toxic & Infectious Substances 

  • Radioactive Material 

  • Corrosives


Who Should Complete TDG Training?

Any employees involved in the transportation, shipping and receiving of dangerous goods are required to complete TDG training to fully understand the hazards, identify hazardous materials, properly handle these materials, as well as understand what to do in an emergency.
