Basic Hazardous Substances
Chemicals, gunks, glues, pastes, acids – chemicals in the workplace come in lots of shapes, colours and hazards but the hazards are often misunderstood. This is because the hazards are to a person’s health and these hazards can’t always be seen, tasted, smelt or seen and if the hazard doesn’t register on a person’s sense they may perceive that it isn’t a risk. This course tackles the fundamentals of understanding health hazards and helps participants to give the necessary respect to the hazards and risks associated with chemical handling.
