Transportation of Dangerous Goods (TDG) Course Overview
Canada's rules for transporting dangerous goods are called the Transportation of Dangerous Goods Regulations (i.e. TDG Regulations). Unlike regulations in the United States which only apply to hazardous materials in commerce, Canada's TDG Regulations apply to everyone – even for goods such as gasoline, oxygen and propane for personal use.
This is critical health and safety training for anyone who may handle or transport dangerous goods according to the Transportation of Dangerous Goods Act.
