Transport of dangerous goods training participants will be presented a thorough overview of the Transportation of Dangerous Goods Regulation (TDGR).

  • Shipping names, classes, UN numbers and packing groups for the dangerous goods that are normally encountered on the job.
  • Safety marks such as labels and placards that are used to identify the different classes of dangerous goods that are normally encountered on the job.

  • The requirements regarding mixed loads and the need for segregation of incompatible dangerous goods.
  • The proper selection and use of means of containment for the dangerous goods.
  • Proper use of all equipment that is used in the handling, offering for transport and/or transportation of dangerous goods.
  • What to do if the shipping documents, placards, labels, other safety marks or means of containment seem inadequate or incorrect.
  • What constitutes an accidental release and the reporting requirements if an accident happens.
  • The requirements regarding mixed loads and the need for segregation of incompatible dangerous goods.
  • Emergency Response Assistance Plans (ERAP) requirements if a plan is required.

You will learn by:

  • Overview of the Emergency Response Guidebook
  • Review of recent applicable TDGR amendments
