Introduction

Dangerous Goods such as Gasoline, Propane and Chemicals are on the roadways and highways in Canada every single day. The Transportation of Dangerous Goods (TDG) Regulations were created to protect the public from an accidental spill or leak.

The TDG system was designed to provide information to anyone who comes in contact with dangerous goods, including information for emergency responders.

These regulations ensure that:
  • A shipping document outlines the dangerous goods being transported.
  • Safe packing protocols help to prevent spills.
  • Safety Marks, including labels and placards, provide visual cues about the dangerous goods being transported.
  • Emergency Actions protect people and the environment from spills and leaks.
