What is Transportation of Dangerous Goods?
Dangerous goods are items or substances that may pose a risk to human health, property, safety, or the environment during transportation. Such goods must be properly labelled, handled, and contained according to a set of regulations that are meant to protect public safety.
This comprehensive course in TDG teaches workers how to recognize and correctly communicate the nature and level of danger associated with specific chemicals. In addition, students learn how to transport and contain dangerous goods, as well as how to properly report their operations.
Who Needs TDG Training?
All employees who are required to transport dangerous goods as part of their work attributions and their supervisors must undergo TDG training. The course is geared towards existing workers, as well as job candidates looking to complete their CVs, and businesses that must comply with the latest safety regulations.
Although TDG training is mandatory by law for all employees who transport dangerous goods, this is more likely to take place in certain industries, as follows:
- Energy & Electricity,
- Oil & Gas,
- Logistics (Shipping & Warehousing),
- Pharmaceuticals & Healthcare,
- Agriculture & Food,
- Waste Management.
Who Is Responsible for TDG Training?
Businesses who require employees to transport dangerous goods are legally responsible for the implementation of proper TDG training. The employees, on the other hand, must attend the training program and apply any learned strategies in the workplace.
In addition to online certification, site-specific training will likely be required and may include:
- Safe Handling and Transportation Practices,
- Proper Equipment Use,
- Air Transport Training,
- Marine Transport Training.
What Do You Need to Learn?
To complete this safety course, employees must become familiar with the specific topics set out in section 6.2. SOR/2017-253. In addition, the student must be able to recognize different classes of dangerous goods, perform adequate documentation prior to transport, use the right means of containment, and describe the correct behavior in case of an emergency.
How Long Is the Certificate Valid?
TDG certification is valid for 2 years for transport using an aircraft or for 3 years, otherwise. Furthermore, because employees learn strategies specific to their line of work when they undergo TDG training, they are required to re-take this course whenever they change jobs or employers.
What Other Courses Should I Take?
TDG training is often acquired together with WHMIS 2015, NORM, and/or Defensive Driving.
