Dangerous goods put people, property, or the environment at risk due to their chemical or physical properties. The hazards associated with dangerous goods are magnified when they are moved or transported. Accordingly, Canada’s Transportation of Dangerous Goods (TDG) Act ensures public safety by specifying strict regulations that must be followed when transporting these types of materials.
