As per TDG regulations, every employee who handles dangerous goods should have appropriate training to ensure the safety of everyone involved in the transportation process.

TDG training is essential for the safe handling and transportation of hazardous materials. The course provides employees with the necessary knowledge to handle dangerous goods safely, thereby minimizing the risk of accidents, injuries, and property damage. Proper training helps prevent hazards that can cause harm to employees, the public, and the environment.
