All chemical exposures have the potential for serious health consequences. Depending on the toxicology and concentration, the effects of chemical exposures may be immediate (acid burns) or long term (chronic beryllium disease or cancer). In any case, chemical exposures may result in life-threatening outcomes. Chemicals may cause physical damage such as explosions or fires resulting in serious injury and facility damage.
Facility and mission-related effects might include corrosive actions that degrade equipment performance (like mercury on copper-nickel alloys and aluminium) and residual contamination that limits the future use of facilities and equipment. Environmental issues may arise as a result of spills, releases, or waste chemical inventories. In addition to the health effects, physical damage, or environmental effects that may result from a chemical incident, there will be a need to initiate emergency response actions to mitigate the potential impact of the incident.
This online training course will highlight:
The key components of an effective program for working with toxic and hazardous materials
The importance of identifying toxic and hazardous materials stored and used
How to identify potential risks of storing and handling toxic and hazardous materials
How to carry out effective monitoring and measurement safe operating procedures
Providing personnel with essential training and information on toxic and hazardous materials
