Security awareness training summary

In 2019, Transport Canada introduced the Transportation of Dangerous by Rail Security Regulations. These regulations help make moving dangerous goods by rail more secure.

Railway carriers and loaders must train all employees who deal with transporting dangerous goods by rail.

This document explains:

  • what security awareness training is, and its purpose
  • which employees must be trained
  • how to keep training records
  • how to create a security awareness training program for your company

Your training should explain security issues, the roles and responsibilities of employees, and help manage security risks related to terrorism, unlawful interference (tampering), possible threats and security concerns.
