Being able to properly classify dangerous goods for transportation is a key component of TGA. The classifications, their associated safety marks and containment guidelines ensure that all parties involved in the transportation of dangerous materials are aware of what is in a shipment, and how it should be treated. This course will explain dangerous goods classes and divisions, and packing guidelines. Documentation requirements, safety marks and containment methods will also be covered. This course was developed with subject matter support provided by the Pinchin Group of Companies, an environmental, health and safety consulting firm with offices across Canada. Please note, the course materials and content were current with the laws and regulations at the time of the last expert review, however, they may not reflect the most current legal developments.
