2 Module 1: Overview 2

3 What is TDG? The Transportation of Dangerous Goods (TDG) Regulations are intended to protect the public from the hazards of an accidental leak or spill. The TDG system provides information to everyone who comes into contact with dangerous goods. 3

4 Purpose of TDG The regulations ensure that: A shipping document describes the dangerous goods. Safe packaging helps prevent spills and leaks from happening. Safety marks provide visual aids about the hazards of the dangerous goods. Emergency actions protect people and the environment in case of a leak or spill. 4

10 Module 3: Enforcement 10

11 Training Everyone who handles dangerous goods, prepares dangerous goods for transport or carries dangerous goods must be trained and certified. It is up to the employer to determine what type and level of training is required for each person. 11

12 Certificates Dangerous goods training certificates are valid for 3 years and are issued by the employer. The certificate is not valid unless both the employer and the employee have signed the certificate. The certificate is non-transferable. The certificate must always be with the person in case a dangerous goods inspector request to see it. 12

13 13

14 Inspectors The regulations are enforced by inspectors who are government trained. Inspectors can be weigh-scale operators, police officers or other government employees. All inspectors have a certificate of designation showing their authorization. 14

15 Inspectors Inspectors have the authority to: Search shipments or vehicles. Seize and hold dangerous goods. Take samples. Make copies of documents. Refuse entry into the country due to problems with shipments or vehicles. 15

16 Inspectors An inspector will check to ensure that: Your training certificate is valid. The shipping document is completed correctly. Dangerous goods are labeled correctly. Vehicles are placarded. Dangerous goods are loaded, secured and transported safely. 16

17 Inspectors Penalties for failing to comply with the dangerous goods regulations can vary from fines to different jail terms. Anyone involved with the dangerous goods can be charged. 17

18 End of Module 3 18

19 Module 4: Classification 19

20 Classification A dangerous good is a product or substance that could be hazardous during transport or if there should be a leak or spill. It is the responsibility of the shipper to know whether the good is a flammable item, toxic item, corrosive item etc. and to find out how the good should be classified under the regulations. 20

21 Classes There are 9 different classes of dangerous goods. Each class represents a different type of hazard. There are different colors, symbols and numbers that differentiate each class. 21

22 Classification Guide 22

23 Primary and Subsidiary Classes If a product has more than one type of hazards it may belong to more than one class. The primary class is shown first and the subsidiary classes in brackets. 23

24 Packing Groups In some classes, the degree of hazard is indicated by packing groups which is always shown in roman numerals. 24

25 Shipping Names There are millions of chemical compounds with millions of trade names. To reduce confusion, the dangerous goods regulations include a list of approximately 3000 shipping names. The shipper must choose a correct shipping name from the list. 25

26 Shipping Names The shipping name does not always have to be written in capital letters. The shipping name can be singular or plural. The word order can be changed as long as the name still makes sense. 26

27 Shipping Names There are some shipping names which are very precise such as propane and acetone. Other shipping names are often used to describe mixtures that contain dangerous goods. If N. O. S. (Not Otherwise Specified) is in the shipping name, the main hazardous ingredient of the product has to be added. 27

28 UN Numbers The same United Nations (UN) number is used all around the world to identify dangerous goods even though the shipping name may differ from place to place. Example: Gasoline is UN 1203 even though it is called benzin in Germany and gasolina in Mexico. 28

29 Using the List of Dangerous Goods Below are the first 5 columns of the alphabetical list of dangerous goods: Column 1 Column 2 Column 3 Column 4 Column 5 Shipping Name and Description UN Number Class Packing Group/Risk Group Special Provisions METHANOL UN (6.1) II 43 The shipping name is always shown in capitals. The UN number always appears with the letters UN. The primary class is listed first, followed by the subsidiary class in brackets. The packing group or the risk group shows the degree of hazard. Special provisions may add definitions, restrictions or exemptions. 29

30 Using the List of Dangerous Goods Other columns in the dangerous goods list contain additional information such as: Explosive limits. Quantities requiring an emergency response plan. Maximum quantities permitted if passengers are also carried. Dangerous goods that are marine pollutants. 30

31 Class 1 - Explosives Class 1 products are designed to explode or create special effects. Materials that could explode accidentally are not included in class 1. For explosives that have greater hazards, the burning bomb symbol is used. For explosives that have less risk of exploding, the bomb symbol does not appear. 31

32 Class 1 - Explosives Explosives are separated into compatibility groups shown by capital letters near the bottom of the label. Explosives in different compatibility groups should not be shipped together. If explosives are being shipped, additional training in safe handling is required. 32

33 Class 2 - Gases Materials that are under pressure may have several hazards including: Violent explosion. Rapidly spreading vapours. If heated, the cylinder could turn into a missile. 33

34 Class 2 - Gases Flammable Gas Symbol is a flame with a red background. Non-Flammable Gas Only hazardous because they are compressed. Symbol is a cylinder with a green background. Toxic Gas Poisonous and/or corrosive. Symbol is a skull and crossbones. 34

35 Class 3 Flammable Liquids Liquids can move quickly and spread over a large area. Vapours can ignite and cause a explosion or fire. Symbol is a flame on a red background. Flammable liquids are separated into packing groups according to the flash point and the initial a) boiling point. 35

36 Class 4 Flammable Substances Ignite easily and have fire hazards that re difficult to control. All have the flame symbol bout on different colored backgrounds. 36

37 Class 4 Flammable Substances Flammable Solids Can catch fire easily. Once burning, hard to extinguish. Symbol is a red and white striped background with the flame symbol. Spontaneously Combustible Could ignite without warning. Symbol is the flame with a half red/half white background indicating burning/not burning. 37

38 Class 4 Flammable Substances Dangerous When Wet Could react with water to give off flammable gases or could burst into flames on contact with water. Symbol is a blue background with the flame symbol. 38

39 Class 5 Oxidizers/Organic Peroxides Can provide oxygen to increase the intensity of a fire. Symbol is a flame with an O for oxygen on a yellow background. 39

40 Class 5 Oxidizers/Organic Peroxides Oxidizers Substances that contain large amounts or readily available oxygen that would feed a fire. Organic Peroxides Unstable and reactive. When combined with other material, can burst into flame, create heat and provide more oxygen. 40

41 Class 6 Toxic/Infectious Substances Toxic May cause injury or death. b) Can be inhaled, swallowed or absorbed. Symbol is a skull and crossbones. Infectious Can cause disease. Label and placard show a biomedical symbol. 41

42 Class 7 - Radioactives Give off a form of energy that can break down atoms and molecules. Exposure to radiation can damage tissue and bones. Exposure can also cause cancer and genetic mutation. Radioactives are separated into hazard categories according to the level of radioactivity. Highly regulated and must be packaged, stored and documented under the rules of the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission. If shipping or transporting radioactives, additional training is required. 42

43 Class 8 - Corrosives Corrosives can damage skin, metal or other materials. Separated into different packaging groups. If corrosives are mixed together or with other dangerous goods there could be violent reactions take place. c) 43

44 Class 9 - Miscellaneous Dangerous goods that are not covered by any of the other 8 classes but are still dangerous to ones health. The symbol is black and white stripes in the top half of the diamond. b) 44

45 End of Module 4 45

46 Module 5: Shipping Document 46

47 Shipping Document Every shipment of dangerous goods must have a shipping document. Some of the information on the shipping document is for the use of emergency responders. The shipping document does not have to be a special form, it can be a waybill, trip ticket etc. 47

48 Shipping Document A shipping document must include: Date Shipper s name. Shipper s address. 24 hour contact number. Quantity of dangerous goods. Unit of measure. Number of packages. 48

49 49

50 Additional Information For every shipment of dangerous goods the shipping document must also include a description in the following order: Shipping name. Primary class. UN number. Packing group. 50

51 Additional Information If an emergency response assistance plan is required, the shipper must also include: The reference number of the plan. The phone number that activates the plan. 51

52 Additional Information Other information that may be required is: For explosives, the combustibility group. For infectious substances, the risk group. For radioactives, other details. The words not odorized for liquefied petroleum gas. For containers that are almost empty, the words residue last contained and the shipping name. Fumigation details. Control and emergency temperatures. 52

53 Non Dangerous Goods Dangerous goods can be listed together with non-dangerous goods on the same shipping document as long as they are separated and they dangerous good stands out. It can be: Listed first. Written or highlighted in a different color. Indicated by an X or in a column marked DG 53

54 Waste Waste dangerous goods may require a special shipping document called a waste manifest. 54

55 Location of Documents The shipping document must be carried within the driver s reach. When the driver leaves the cab, the documents must be left on the driver s seat in a pocket on the driver s door or in a very obvious place in the cab. If the driver leaves the truck in a supervised area, a copy of the shipping document must be left with the person in charge. If the trailer is detached from the tractor or the dangerous goods are unloaded and left in an unsupervised area, the shipping document must be placed in an accessible, identifiable area. 55

56 Transfer or Delivery When the driver transfers the shipment, the next carrier must be given a copy of the shipping document. When the driver delivers the shipment, the receiver must be given a document that identifies the dangerous goods. 56

57 Keeping Copies on File Shippers and carriers must keep a copy of each dangerous good shipping document for two years. 57

58 End of Module 5 58

59 Module 6: Safety Marks 59

60 Safety Marks Safety marks are often the first warning to someone that a product is hazardous. The safety marks that are used in Canada are part of an internationally recognized. Each class is indicated either by a distinctive color or symbol or by the use of the class number in the bottom corner. 60

61 Small Containers Small containers hold 450 litres or less. Small containers include: Drums, pail and cans. Cardboard boxes and crates. Aerosols and cylinders. 61

62 Small Containers A label is usually 100mm x 100mm (4 inches x 4 inches). If the full size label cannot be used because of the shape or size of the container, a smaller label may be used. 62

63 Small Containers The shipper must ensure that each package or small container displays the following before handing the dangerous goods to the driver: A hazard label. The shipping name. The UN number. 63

64 Small Containers The safety marks should be put on at least one side of each small container. The shipping name appears next to the label. The UN number can be shown with the shipping name. 64

65 Large Containers Large containers can hold more than 450 litres. Large containers include: Portable tanks and bulk tanks. Bins and hoppers. 65

66 Large Containers The shipper must ensure that the large containers have placards or that the driver has been issued placards. The driver must attach the placards to all four sides of the vehicle before the dangerous goods are loaded. A placard is usually 250mm x 250mm (10 inches x 10 inches). If the full placard cannot be used due to size, reduced size placards may be used. Placards must remain in place until the container is completely empty of dangerous goods. 66

67 Placarding Guidelines Here are some general placarding guidelines: A shipment of dangerous goods requiring an emergency response assistance plan requires placards and Un number. Liquids or gases in large containers need placards and UN number. Trucks carrying less than 500kg of dangerous goods do not need placards or a UN number. Trucks carrying more than 500kg of one class of dangerous goods need placards. If a shipment is from one shipper and is over 4000kg, it needs placards and UN number. For a mixed load of over 500kg, the driver could use class placards or danger placards. 67

68 Compartmentalized Tanks If compartments contain dangerous goods, the tank must show: A placard on each compartment. A UN number on each compartment. All the placards and UN numbers on each end. 68

69 Compartmentalized Tanks If all dangerous goods are in the same class, the tank may be placarded with: Only one placard on each side and each end. The UN number on each compartment. All the UN numbers on each end. 69

70 Compartmentalized Tanks If all compartments contain flammable liquids, the tank must show: A class 3 placard on each side and each end. Only the UN number of the liquid with the lowest flash point. 70

71 Fumigation If dangerous goods are used as a fumigant, the shipper must ensure that the vehicle shows a fumigation sign at each entrance into the vehicle. The sign must include the name of the fumigant. 71

72 Elevated Temperature Should there be dangerous goods being transported at high temperatures, elevated temperature signs must be shown on the sides and ends of the vehicle. These signs are not required for tar or asphalt. 72

73 Marine Pollutant Should the marine pollutant safety mark be required, it should be displayed beside the label or placard. 73

74 End of Module 6 74

75 Module 7: Containers 75

76 Containers The shipper is responsible for selecting the proper container for dangerous goods and ensuring that the containers are in good condition. Certain dangerous goods may only be transported in containers built to national or international standards. Some containers may have a certification mark that begins with the United Nations symbol. Cylinders for compressed gases may show certification marks that begin with TC or DOT. 76

77 Containers When dangerous goods are shipped in large quantities, they must be transported in large containers designed and built specifically to hold that product. 77

78 Dangerous Goods Mixed with Non-Dangerous Goods Never mix dangerous and non-dangerous goods in the same container if there is a chance that the non-dangerous good could cause the dangerous goods to spill, leak or cause a hazard. 78

79 Reusing Containers Containers may be reused if they are in good enough condition. If a container is being reused, the shipper must ensure that all of the labels and safety marks on the container apply to the dangerous goods contained in the container. 79

80 Across Border Shipments Should there be a need to transport a dangerous good from Canada to the United States of America, the shipper must ensure that the containers meet US standards. 80

81 End of Module 7 81

82 Module 8: Special Situations 82

83 Special Situations There are certain situations when some or all of the dangerous goods regulations do not apply. When this is true, permits provide temporary variations of the regulations: Small shipments of dangerous goods. Small quantities of dangerous goods. Small quantities of dangerous goods used for personal use. Samples of dangerous goods being sent to laboratories. Dangerous goods intended for medical use. Agricultural use of dangerous goods. 83

84 Regulations Shipments going to or from the United States of America must meet American regulations as well. There are different regulations for transportation of dangerous goods by: Rail. Marine. Air. 84

85 Up to 500 Kilograms Some dangerous goods are exempt from the regulations in quantities of up to 500kg. Each small container must: Be a maximum of 30kg. Show the shipping name. Have dangerous goods labels and the UN number or the safety marks required by other legislations. 85

86 Limited Quantities When dangerous goods are transported in small quantities, they are exempt from the regulations. The maximum kilograms or litres are shown for each shipping name. Each small container must: Be a maximum of 30kg. Be strong enough so it will not leak or spill. Show the words limited quantity 86

87 Personal Use Dangerous goods are exempt from the regulation if they are: Being transported for personal use. Packaged so they will not spill or leak. In quantities available for retail sale. 87

88 Samples If dangerous goods are being sent to a laboratory for analysis they are exempt from the regulations if they: Are less than 10kg. Are in a strong container. Show the words test samples. Samples must be accompanied by a shipping document that includes the shipper s name and address and the words test samples This exemption does not apply to explosives or radioactives. 88
