Hazardous chemicals are substances, mixtures or processes that may cause adverse health or physical effects. Exposure usually occurs through inhalation, skin contact or ingestion. Adverse health effects can be short or long term.
To control the risks associated with hazardous chemicals you should refer to the hierarchy of controls and apply the highest level of control that is practicable to still allow the work to be done.
This short course trains how to safely handle chemicals according to the hierarchy of controls, beginning with eliminating the hazard and using non-toxic chemicals. The course moves through the hierarchy to discuss engineering, administrative and PPE controls.
The training explains the safe way to contain and clean-up spills using the correct spill containment system and waste disposal bins.
