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, and 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, job candidates looking to enhance 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:

  • Agriculture & Food,
  • Energy & Electricity,
  • Logistics (Shipping & Warehousing),
  • Oil & Gas,
  • Pharmaceuticals & Healthcare,
  • Waste Management.

Who Is Responsible for TDG Training?

Businesses that require employees to transport dangerous goods are legally responsible for the implementation of proper TDG training. The employees 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:

  • Air Transport Training,
  • Marine Transport Training.
  • Proper Equipment Use,
  • Safe Handling and Transportation Practices,

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 before transport, use the right means of containment, and describe the correct behaviour in the case of an emergency.

How Long Is the Certificate Valid?

TDG certification is valid for 2 years for transport using an aircraft, in all other cases 3 years. 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. For a complete list of safety courses tailored to your line of work, please access our consultation page and select your specific job. The suggested courses are designed to help you maintain your safety in any work environment related to your employment.

How TDG Online Training Benefits You

Cheapest and most convenient

In today’s fast-paced society, TDG online courses have become the cheapest and most convenient solution to get your safety training done.

Save Time and Money

With TDG online training, you no longer need to schedule appointments, commute to a training facility, and spend hundreds to thousands of dollars on courses and materials, all because an offline training facility can’t keep up with modern solutions due to human resources.

Pause, Resume or Retake Exams

It is also significantly more convenient to opt for the TDG online training because it gives the attendant the option to start the training at any given time and gain full control of the content. TDG online courses give you the option to pause, resume, and even retake parts of the training that you did not fully master on your first try.
