The Regulations state that in order for a person to handle, offer for transport or transport dangerous goods, or direct another person to do so, the person performing those activities is adequately trained and holds a training certificate or is acting under the direct supervision of a trained person who holds a training certificate.

An individual is deemed to be “adequately trained” in relation to their duties when the employer has reasonable grounds to believe he/she is adequately trained and issues a training certificate to the employee.

  • The employer must issue a Training Certificate that indicates:
    1. Name and address of the place of business of the employer
    2. The employee’s name
    3. The date the training certificate expires, preceded by the words “Expires on” or “Date d’expiration”
    4. The aspects of handling, offering for transport or transporting dangerous goods for which the employee is trained, including specific topics as set out in Section 6.2 Example: “All aspects of transporting dangerous goods included in Class 9”
  • The certificate of training:
    1. Must be signed by both the employee and the employer (or another employee acting on behalf of the employer)
    2. Is valid for three years (36 months)
    3. Is not transferable
    4. Must be carried at all times (so it can be produced at the request of an inspector)
  • Some of you may be provided with additional training as it relates to your company’s particular products and operations, i.e., Work Place Hazardous Materials Information System – WHMIS training. It is up to each employer to decide what level of training best suits each employee.
