TDG Pocket Guide, 2nd Edition
This handy Guide provides at-a-glance information needed to comply with Canadian regulations governing transportation of dangerous goods. This take-anywhere pocket-size book helps drivers ensure that dangerous goods are properly labelled, classified, identified, documented and secured.
Full-colour illustrations and a sign location guide are just two of the many reasons to own the TDG Pocket Guide.
