Four One-Day Modular Workshops – May 5-8, 2009. Mississauga, ON

The fields of dangerous goods transportation and waste management are becoming increasingly complex and place an ever expanding onus on all parties involved including manufacturers, shippers, generators, carriers, transfer and disposal facility operators. This series of four one-day modular workshops is designed to help participants develop proper safe handling procedures and navigate through the complex rules and regulations at the Federal and Provincial levels that are necessary to ensure compliance. The programs have been developed in a modular format to address the needs of both new and experienced participants alike.

MODULE 1: Safe Handling — Tuesday May 5

This one day program is designed to show participants how to safely handle hazardous materials and wastes in the workplace. On completion, participants will know the many terms, terminology, legislation and communication systems that impact such managed systems and will be able to identify the hazards associated with handling these materials and the steps necessary to control and ameliorate them.

MODULE 2: Transportation of Dangerous Goods — Wednesday May 6

The Transportation of Dangerous Goods (TDG) regulations continue to be amended on a regular basis. This session is designed to show those who are new to the field how to comply with the regulations, and to give an update on the latest amendments to people who are currently trained and active in the field.

MODULE 3: Hazardous Waste Management — Thursday May 7

Initiatives such as pre-notification, mixing restrictions, derived from rules, Land Disposal Restrictions (LDR’s), recycling restrictions, options and the requirements of the registration process all add to the cumbersome task of hazardous waste regulatory compliance in this area. The new LDR’s are placing significant, new, responsibilities on generators and service providers alike.

MODULE 4: Case Studies — Friday May 8

This module is restricted to people who have either completed Days 1 and 2, or have an acceptable, provable, level of competence in TDG and waste management. This session is designed to act as a comprehensive review and refresher of the two areas. The day is comprised of workshop sessions and case studies that are designed to draw on participant skills to properly interpret and apply the appropriate regulatory documents to managed systems for TDG and hazardous waste.
