The Transportation of Dangerous Goods Regulations (TDGR) is a federal legislation enacted to promote public safety. These regulations require shippers, carriers and handlers to meet specific standards when preparing or transporting dangerous goods.
Any person handling, offering for transport or transporting dangerous goods must receive appropriate training (specific to the mode of transport used). This training must be updated every 24 months for air transport and 36 months for surface transport.
WHMIS is enforced through federal and provincial laws. These legislations require Canadian suppliers (including importers and distributors) to supply material safety data sheets and labels for all controlled products sold or distributed to be used in a workplace in Canada.
After more than a decade of work, the new global system, the Globally Harmonized System (GHS) of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS), was adopted in Canada. Industries will be eventually affected by this change.
All Canadian workers (shop workers, welders, restaurant personnel, janitorial staff etc.) who could be exposed (directly or indirectly) to hazardous materials (solvents, aerosols, acids, cleaning agents etc.) must be trained.
Forklifts are highly hazardous machines which can quickly become killers. Each year dozens of workers are injured or killed during routine operations. Several recent deaths (September 2008 – February 2009) have prompted the provincial government to be more pro-active in the enforcement of the regulations which requires training for all operators.
Quebec legislation requires employers to train and certify forklift operators.
