TDG Safety Awareness Kit for Industry

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

Each year, more and more dangerous goods are moved across Canada by road, rail, water and air. These shipments range from industrial chemicals to manufactured goods and, while indispensable to our modern way of life, they can pose a threat to public safety if not handled safely.

Transport Canada’s Transportation of Dangerous Goods (TDG) Directorate is the focal point for Canada’s national program to promote public safety during the transportation of dangerous goods.

To promote public safety, the TDG Directorate has enhanced its Safety Awareness Program and is reaching out to targeted audiences such as First Responders, communities/municipalities and the general public . The TDG Directorate prepared safety awareness kits, containing safety awareness material that could be of help. These kits can be viewed on Transport Canada’s Transportation of Dangerous Goods Safety Awareness Materials and FAQ webpage.
