TORONTO, Ont. – The Canadian Trucking Alliance’s dangerous goods publications have long been considered the industry standard.

With the new TDG regulations taking effect on Aug. 15, CTA has developed an easy-to-read guidebook to help truck drivers and others comply with the new rules.

Transporting Dangerous Goods by Truck is priced at $10 for provincial association members and $12 for all others (taxes are extra). Orders may be placed now through your provincial trucking association.

Transporting Dangerous Goods by Truck explains the new regulations easily and comprehensively. The guidebook also includes information truck drivers should know when transporting dangerous goods between Canada and the U.S. The key features of the Emergency Response Guide with information required by truck drivers when operating in the US is also contained in Transporting Dangerous Goods by Truck.

The book is in five parts:

Part I – regulations, and includes classification, emergency response planning, and identification of dangerous goods, that is, the shipping document, labels and placards;

Part II – responsibilities, incident reporting and training;

Part III – LTL, Bulk, Intermodal, and international movements with an emphasis on the U.S requirements;

Part IV – exemptions and with those dangerous goods that have special requirements;

Part V – actual Schedules from the Regulations. n
