Dangerous Goods Compliance Courses
Shipping dangerous goods (or hazardous materials) is more than just sticking a label on a box and giving the carrier a waybill. It’s all about COMPLIANCE, compliance which you can achieve easily following our 8 steps. Eight steps (and we’ll even bet you’ll never need step 8) to ensure that your shipments are ready to go and be accepted by any carrier. Gone are the days of package refusal, returns or even far more worrying, … FINES !!!! Leave the dark side and see how easy compliance can be with our user-friendly tools and to-the-point TDG training.
Workplace accidents are a constant cause of worry and unnecessary expense. WHMIS is the standard for hazards communication on hazardous materials in the workplace. People exposed to hazardous materials, even randomly, must therefore undergo WHMIS 2015 training in addition to the transport of dangerous goods training when required considering that these two regulations are different but complementary. Protect your employees and business continuity by investing a single hour of their time by taking our WHMIS worker’s training.
