How do you know if you need dangerous goods training? Anyone who handles, ships, receives, transports or offers a consignment for transport requires dangerous goods training under federal law. On Canada ‘s highways, nearly 1 out of every 7 trucks is carrying dangerous goods. Gasoline, diesel, antifreeze and acids are just a few of the 3000 dangerous goods transported on our roads everyday. Alberta-wide safety training in TDG is available through Spectrum Safety Services in Edmonton.

We currently do not have regularly scheduled dates for individuals in this course, but please contact us for more information.

TDG Self Study Course

Instructor-led TDG Training at our Edmonton Facility

Instructor-led classes are also an option for groups wishing to train a number of people at once. Please contact us to discuss this option.

The course involves interactive lecture, video, exercises and examples of real situations and competency examination. Your safety training begins with an understanding of the federal law and who can enforce dangerous goods laws. You will learn how dangerous goods are classified under the international system, safe packaging requirements and how to protect yourself from hazards by familiarizing yourself with safety marks such as placards and labels. Filling out a Shipping document is also part of the dangerous goods course.

Special requirements such as for PCB’s, radioactives and explosives will also be discussed. Finally you will complete an open book exam to receive your certification. This course is offered onsite at your facility or at our safety training locations.
