safety mom transportation course

New amendments to the Transportation of Dangerous Goods Act and Regulations were made in July 2015. Our program is designed for road mode application and outlines the activities of the Consignor, Consignee, and Carrier.

This course teaches components of training, packaging, classification of Dangerous goods, safety training marking and placarding, documentation, Emergency Response Assistance Plan (ERAP), and Accident Reporting.

There are Significant changes to Danger Placardin (sections 4.15 and 4.16), Information on a Shipping Document (Section 3.5(1)(c), Consignor’s Certification SOR/2014-152 (Section 3.6.1(1)(a) and Section 3.6.1(2)

If you provide a list of chemicals used at your workplace, the class can discuss their specific TDG profile.

The recent TDG Act and Regulations were updated to harmonize dangerous goods activities between the USA and Canada and to provide a clearer format for public prevention while transporting dangerous goods.

TDG

The objective of TDG is to protect the public and the environment from dangerous occurrences when transporting, offering for transport, or receiving dangerous goods. This training will benefit personnel at loading docks, truck drivers, reception staff, warehouse workers, and those filling out waybills of lading.

Open book exam, movie or multi-media format and lecture provided. Bring in your description of your dangerous goods and documentation for a more site-specific program! A permanent ticket will be awarded following successful completion.

You can earn up to 3 years of certification (tied to the length of time you work for the employer or are self-employed). It may extend up to 4 hours in length, depending on class size and volume of dangerous goods.

GHS

A preview into the Upcoming Globally Harmonized System for the Classification and Labelling of Chemicals.

The worldwide adoption of the United Nations’ upcoming ” harmonization system ” will be implemented in Canada soon. Currently, countries utilize different systems to classify their chemical hazards. This presents confusion in interpreting other countries’ hazard information and creates problems regarding global trade.

Canada has been participating in the development of GHS for a number of years. Their contribution to the process will ensure that hazard information is consistent, make compliance easier, and reduce international trade barriers.
