TDG Training for Canadians
About TDG Training
The Transportation of Dangerous Goods ( TDG ) is Canada's hazard communication standard. The key elements of the system are cautionary labelling of containers of TDG "Dangerous Goods".
TDG is implemented through coordinated federal, provincial and territorial legislation. Supplier labelling and MSDS requirements are set out under the Hazardous Products Act and associated Controlled Products Regulations. The Hazardous Products Act and its regulations are administered by the Government of Canada Department of Health, commonly referred to as Health Canada.
The Transportation of Dangerous Goods establishes a national standard for the classification of hazardous and dangerous goods. In addition to setting out criteria for biohazards, chemical and acute hazards, the regulations specify criteria for chronic health hazards including mutagenicity, embryo and reproductive toxicity, respiratory and skin.
Each of the provincial, territorial and federal agencies responsible for TDG have established employer TDG requirements within their respective jurisdiction. These requirements place an onus on employers to ensure that controlled products used, stored, handled or disposed of in the workplace are properly labelled, MSDSs are made available to workers, and workers receive education and training to ensure the safe storage, handling and use of controlled products in the workplace.
TDG balances workers' right-to-know with industry's right to protect
confidential business information and includes a mechanism for ruling on claims
for exemption from disclosure of confidential business information as well as
appeals to these rulings.
