The Transportation of Dangerous Goods Act (TDGA) sets requirements for transporting dangerous goods to minimize the risk of a release or spill that could endanger the environment, workers and others. But despite your best efforts, dangerous goods may still be released into the environment if, say, a train derails or a trucks gets into a collision. So the Consolidated Transportation of Dangerous Goods Regulations (TDG Regulations) require companies that transport or import certain dangerous goods to have emergency response assistance plans (ERAPs) to help local authorities respond to an incident involving dangerous goods
