Transportation of Dangerous Goods (TDG): Overview

People who handle, offer for transport, or transport (i.e. handle, ship, carry or receive) dangerous goods must be adequately trained and hold a TDG Certificate of Training for their work.

This Transportation of Dangerous Goods-TDG online training course will provide a detailed description of all aspects of the TDG system for managers and everyone with TDG responsibilities. This course consists of eight courses that provide detailed descriptions of all aspects of the TDG system for the transportation of dangerous goods by road. This course will help employers, owners, managers, supervisors, TDG coordinators, and those who have responsibilities for determining the training requirements for employees who will be handling dangerous goods, meet their responsibilities to ensure that all work involving dangerous goods is done properly according to the requirements of the TDG Act and Regulations.

A record of completion is provided by CCOHS upon successful completion of the final exam. A formal TDG Certificate of Training is issued by the employer when they determine their employee has a sound knowledge of all the topics and has received workplace specific training that directly relates to their duties with dangerous goods. The course was developed by CCOHS.
