From chemicals and gases to flammable liquids and radioactive materials, dangerous substances are used in various industries such as oil&gas, power generation, petrochemicals and others. Transportation of such materials poses significant risks to public safety, the environment, and the individuals involved. This is where Transportation of Dangerous Goods (TDG) training comes into play. At Irwin's, we can facilitate this training anywhere in British Columbia and Alberta, whether its conducted at our training location or your site. 

Irwin's Transportation of Dangerous Goods (TDG) training is a comprehensive program designed to educate and inform individuals about the safe handling, packaging, labeling, and transportation of hazardous materials. This course is relevant to anyone who handles, ships, or is otherwise involved in the transportation of dangerous goods.

Key Objectives of TDG Training include:

1. Safety First: The primary objective of TDG training is to prioritize safety. It equips individuals with the knowledge and skills needed to identify, handle, and transport dangerous goods safely.

2. Legal Compliance: TDG training ensures that individuals and organizations comply with federal, state, and local regulations governing the transportation of dangerous goods. 

3. Environmental Protection: Hazardous materials have the potential to cause severe harm to the environment if mishandled during transportation. TDG training focuses on best practices to minimize environmental impact.

4. Emergency Response: In the event of an accident or spill involving dangerous goods, trained personnel are better equipped to respond effectively and mitigate the situation. 

5. Public Safety: TDG training is crucial for safeguarding public safety. Accidents involving dangerous goods can have far-reaching consequences, including evacuations, health risks, and disruption of daily life.

The Components of TDG Training include:

1. Classification of Dangerous Goods: Participants learn how to identify and classify hazardous materials according to various regulations and guidelines.
