Who needs TDG training?

In addition to WHMIS training, anyone who handles or transports hazardous or dangerous materials should have this training. This includes employees in shipping and receiving, drivers, and even loaders within a business.

Transporting dangerous goods is often just a part of the job, but there are federally and locally regulated guidelines that dictate how these goods must be transported and how to use an Emergency Response Plan to manage accidents or safety issues.

In Canada these regulations are governed by Transport Canada’s Dangerous Goods (Transportation) Act. http://www.tc.gc.ca/eng/tdg/clear-tofc-211.htm

Although TDG is a Federal regulation some provinces have enacted local rules, so please check with your Provincial Occupational Health and Safety Regulations (please see sidebar)
