What is Transportation of Dangerous Goods (TDG) in Canada?
A dangerous good, also known as a hazardous material or hazmat, is any material or substance that could potentially pose a risk to either health, safety, or property when transported. The Transportation of Dangerous Goods Program (TDG) in Canada sets out rules and regulations on to these goods are transported in a ensure a safe and secure way, posing as little risk as possible to the health and safety of the employees who transport these goods, the environment, and the general public.
Who needs to comply with the TDG Regulations?
Anyone who handles dangerous goods, including transporting, shipping, and receiving, by ground or water (marine) must comply with the TDG Regulations. Transport Canada has provided a basic competency checklist that helps you verify the basic knowledge and skills of someone who transports dangerous goods.
What is the legislation for TDG in Ontario?
Ontario’s TDG legislation, like most provinces, mirrors the Canadian federal TDG regulations. The Dangerous Goods Transportation Act, R.S.O. 1990, c. D.1 provides specific information for transporting volatile goods in the province such as permits, insurance requirements, penalties, and more.
How do I know if I need TDG certification?
If you are a warehouse manager or supervisor, truck driver, fleet dispatcher, or work in another profession where you are either directly or indirectly involved in transporting volatile goods, chances are you need TDG certification. Your employer should be able to provide you with the specific TDG training you need to do your job.
In some cases, you may require both TDG and WHMIS training, which we offer in a complete bundle that includes both our WHMIS (GHS) and TDG online training courses.
Do I need new TDG certification if I get a new job?
It is up to the employer to determine if an employee needs to take or redo TDG certification training. If an employee’s TDG certificate is still valid when they are hired, then the employer may not require the employee to complete TDG training again until their certification expires.
