Did you know that anyone who packages dangerous goods, prepares the paperwork and transports them has to have training under the Transportation of Dangerous Good (TDG) - AIR regulations?
By ground, anyone who handles, offers for transport, or transports dangerous goods
must be trained or be under the direct supervision of an adequately trained person to meet the requirements of TDG - Ground regulations?
There are many out there who are doing the packaging without training then giving the package to a forwarder.
This can lead to both the consignor and the forwarder being charged with the 1st offence having a maximum fine of $50,000, and the second and subsequent offences having a fine of $100,000 per offence.
We are pleased to have David Brunton, a national TDG Air training specialist, back at ilinniapaa campus to deliver this 2-year certificate program.
In 2017, there are numerous new regulatory amendments to the TDG-Air certificate, including new directives and cargo handling requirements for the air transport of lithium batteries; new training directives; new provisions for the packing of dangerous goods, and; new special provisions for shipping.
Anyone shipping or transporting dangerous goods such as chemicals, oxygen, batteries and other items, must have current certification (valid for 2 years) and carry their wallet certificate at all times.
Two dates are available for this 1-day training course.
Full participation is mandatory and passing a final test to receive the certificate.
