b) Classification of Dangerous Goods;
c) Emergency Response Assistance Plans;
d) Dangerous Goods Shipping Document Requirements;
e) Dangerous Goods Safety Marks;

  • Schedule 2 (Special Provisions); and
  • Schedule 3 (List of dangerous goods by shipping name).
  • VALUABLE RESOURCE IN THE TRUCK / DISPATCH OFFICE / SHIPPING AND RECEIVING AREA
    The TDGR has specific responsibilities for shippers, carriers and drivers with respect to ensuring that:

a) The dangerous goods being transported are properly classified;
b) The shipping document us complete and accurate; and,
c) The dangerous goods (means of containment) are displaying the appropriate safety marks.

This guidebook provides the information to ensure the dangerous goods are being shipped properly.  Requirements for reporting releases or thefts are also covered in the Guidebook.

  • U.S. REQUIREMENTS FOR EMERGENCY RESPONSE INFORMATION IN VEHICLE

The U.S. CFR 49 requires carriers transporting Hazardous Materials (Dangerous Goods) in the United States to have emergency response information for the product being transported in the vehicle in an area away from the packages.  The information required to be accessible to the driver includes:

  1. Immediate Hazards to health;
  2. Risks of fire or explosion;
  3. Immediate Precautions to be taken in the event of an incident;
  4. Immediate methods for handling fires;
  5. Initial methods for handling spills or leaks; and
  6. Primary first aid measures.

There are 3 options available to comply with this requirement:

  1. A document which contains all of the above information;
  2. A Safety Data Sheet (SDS / MSDS) for each material transported; or
  3. A copy of the Emergency Response Guidebook (ERG).

As this Guidebook contains the most recent version of the ERG it will satisfy the requirement 172.602 CFR 49.
