Chemical Awareness Training

About the Chemical Safety Training Course

Course Duration: 1/2 day

Each course is tailored to the needs of individual organisations by consulting with the client on current issues prior to delivery of the course. The prior consultation allows the trainer to focus on specific issues during the presentation and also in the Material Safety Data Sheet exercise.

There are two written assessments to the chemical safety training course. The first is a Safety Data Sheets-(SDS) exercise where participants are required to extract requested information from a SSDS provided. The second assessment is a questionnaire to be completed at the end of the course. A handout is provided to each participant prior to commencement of the course.
