To Train Or Not To Train – Part 6 of the Transportation of Dangerous Goods Regulations provides a very clear answer on the question of training. Anyone who handles, offers for transport, transports or imports dangerous goods into Canada must be trained, or at the very least, must be working under the direct supervision of a trained person. To further emphasize this requirement, the onus is put on employers to determine if their employees are adequately trained. If they are not, then employers must not direct or allow employees to handle, offer for transport, transport or import dangerous goods into Canada.
It Is Your Good Name– For years we have been teaching our clients about the penalties for non-compliance. Albeit the penalties are a deterrent it is much more important that we view safety as a responsibility to our families, our employees, our environment and ourselves. Often we report tragic stories to exemplify and stress the importance of complying with these regulations. With a growing concern for sustainable development and an understandable need to maintain ecological balance the magnitude of these events is undeniable and thus, it is necessary to raise a heightened awareness to ensure that similar tragedies do not occur under your watch. It continues to be our objective to keep you informed and safe. We are here to ensure you and your organizations are able to get all the help you need all you have to do is ask.
