WasteMINZ is pleased to bring you a half-day Hazardous Substances Management workshop (for WasteMINZ members only), that will provide you with an introductory summary and practical understanding of hazardous substances and advise you how to interpret safety information and manage hazardous substances. It will be facilitated by Daniel Allen, from Hazchem Services.
Please see the detailed programme below for more information.
This workshop is for organisations that use or store hazardous substances to help fulfil their requirement to provide information, instruction, training and supervision for their team members who use or handle hazardous substances as required under the Health and Safety at Work Act.
The workshop is designed to provide an introductory summary and practical understanding of hazardous substances, how to interpret safety information and how to manage hazardous substances. It focusses on the workplace statutory framework governing the management of hazardous substances in a commercial/industrial context.
This workshop is designed to target users of chemicals or managers/supervisors who need to learn about hazardous substances management and is suited to new team members or as a refresher for existing team members.
Senior technical managers, and other senior health and safety personnel with chemical knowledge may have a good handle on the concepts discussed in the course, so it is more suited as a benchmark for people who are new to or who need refreshing on hazardous substances management to give them the tools to understand their legal obligations and how to identify, understand, store and handle chemicals safely.
