Security Question : 1 + 1 ?

Transport Canada has put forth new requirements for shipping documents used in the Transportation of Dangerous Goods (TDG).    

At SafetySync we have adjusted our TDG training to reflect these changes and present a more in depth look at the elements used to describe dangerous goods and the order in which they are listed on shipping documents.  We also take a more comprehensive look at the special information individuals may encounter on a bill of lading and describe the addition of a new mandatory declaration required, which validates the information listed and the condition of the goods being transported.      

The first change relates to adjustments made to the order in which the description of dangerous goods is laid out.  The following descriptive elements must be listed in this precise order:

  1. UN number
  2. Shipping name (technical name)
  3. Primary Class (Subsidiary class, if applicable)
  4. Packing group (if applicable)
  5. And, for dangerous goods that are subject to special provision 23, the words, “Toxic by inhalation” or “toxic – inhalation hazard” are required.

More information on the specific format of information present on shipping documents, as well as additional information relating to them can be found at under section 3.5.

This information runs parallel with a new mandatory requirement for consignors to certify the information listed on shipping documentation.  SafetySync has amended its TDG course, “Shipping Documents,” to reflect this new requirement and ensure all companies using this training are aware and in compliance with these TDG changes.  A Certified Declaration is to be written and signed on behalf of the consignor.  As of July 15, 2015, consignors are required to present a mandatory statement declaring the goods listed on the bill of lading to be:

  • Tested
  • Classed correctly
  • Packaged correctly
  • Properly affixed with the required safety marks
  • And be in the proper condition required for transport

This certification must be made by the consignor or by a designate acting on the consignors behalf and list the name of the individual(s) responsible for the declaration. 

A specifically worded and formatted consignors certification can be found at under section 3.6.1. 

Security Question : 4 + 4 ?

If you've been curious about creating a custom course and deploying it to your workers we've just created a new help topic that will guide you through the process:

New formats for uploading courses are on the horizon and we're working on a way to upload HTML5 courses from many popular LMS course builders such as Adobe Captivate or Articulate Storyline.

Adding choice for your preferred training delivery format is a priority of ours so stay tuned to hear about updates coming to custom courses this year!
