Chemical Safety & Spill Management Training Course

Introduction:

We use many different chemicals in the workplace. We need them to produce our products and do our jobs. But often these materials can be hazardous to health and safety unless we take proper precautions when handling them. This session will discuss the steps you can take to safely handle the materials you work with so that you can prevent accidents, injuries, and illness.

This training is designed to protect workers responding to hazardous spills and limit the potential environmental & financial impacts upon companies.  Using experienced trainers with hands-on knowledge, we take students through all aspects of spill responses for hazardous materials in the work environment.

Benefits of the Course:

Recognizing hazards associated with the materials you use reduces the risk of accidents.
