Safe Handling Of Hazardous Chemical At Workplace




Each of us works with all kinds of commercially prepared materials and rarely do we consciously expose ourselves to substances that are hazardous. We naively believe that as long as the material is in a sealed container, it won’t hurt the environment or us. But materials do not just sit there, they have to be handled, stored, processed and residuals have to be disposed of.

Safely managing the chemicals in your workplace is good for business and it is good for everyone! It will improve your employees’ safety and health. It will potentially introduce cost savings, through more effective work practices such as correct storage, handling, use and disposal procedures. Potential harm to the environment will also be reduced.

Employers must assess the risks to employees while they are at work and to any other people who may be affected by the way we conduct our business. From this, improvements must be implemented, competent people appointed and appropriate information and training made available to them.
