Canadian Dangerous Goods
Though we try to avoid accidents at work, certain occupations have a higher risk for hazards than others. Transporting goods is one of the occupations that have a higher risk for personal injury, even more so with dangerous materials or goods. If you work in transportation of dangerous goods, signing up for a TDG training course is a must.
In Canada, occupational health and safety is governed by a number of nationwide and provincial legislations. Kelowna is part of the British Columbia, meaning it is covered by the occupational health and safety regulations for the province. When legislations and regulations are in place, it is to safeguard both the worker and his or her employer from injuries and damage than can happen because of transporting dangerous goods.
Transporting Dangerous Goods
When dangerous goods and materials are contained and transporter, they have to abide by strict regulations to keep the handler safe from any untoward accidents. Containers have to be properly labelled according to the Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS, a program also offered at Kelowna First Aid). The goods have to be accompanied by detailed data sheets, so the worker is aware of the exact hazards that the materials can cause.
