Chemical Specific Hazard and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) - Training offered by Chemical Distributors, Incorporated

Chemicals are widely used in our homes, manufacturing and agricultural facilities, as well as many other areas of society. Hazardous chemicals are commonly found in our workplaces. In spite of government regulations and company procedures, the risk always exists for a serious incident involving hazardous chemicals and hazards can vary between chemical. This chemical safety training has been designed to introduce the safe use of chemicals to the workplace.

As an employer, you must assess your workplace to determine if hazards are present that require the use of personal protective equipment.

  • Use protective equipment properly
  • Be aware of when personal protective equipment is necessary
