Transportation of
Dangerous Goods Training 

If your employees are involved in the transport of controlled goods, they need to be TDG trained.

This training extends to staff (even clerical) if they are involved in any of the following tasks:

  1. Arranging for the transportation of controlled goods
  2. Completing the shipping documents
  3. Loading the truck
  4. Driving the truck
  5. Unloading the truck

The Transportation of Dangerous Goods Act (TDG) became law in 1980 in order to protect emergency workers who may be called on to respond to emergencies in which dangerous goods were involved.

Pro Safety Services can train your employees in TDG safety.
