Course Description

This program teaches participants how to identify hazardous products, control hazards from these products, and safely handle controlled products.

TDG regulations are designed to improve public safety when dangerous goods are being handled, offered for transport, or transported by air. They are a set of rules that set safety standards and shipping requirements for hazardous goods. The regulations also provide a means of communicating the nature and level of danger associated with chemicals by means of placards and hazard symbols.

Safety Services Manitoba’s TDG training provides students with the most current legislative information including industry best practices. This course includes a written assessment to validate training competencies.

Participants will receive a certificate upon successful completion of this course.
