It’s important to know how to respond to an accidental release should one occur during the transportation of dangerous goods. This course explains reporting requirements after an emergency situation, and how to put together a plan to deal with such incidents. It also covers how special provisions can be applied to specific types of shipments, and how permits can be used to transport goods within Canada involving activities that fall outside the TDG Act or Regulations.
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.
