This refresher course (ID 2736) is intended for licenced Australian electricians who are required to attend a refresher program for hazardous area competencies already gained. The refresher program is intended to bring current Australian licenced electricians who have been previously trained in hazardous areas up to date on any changes to hazardous area standards and legislation.
It is recommended that electricians attend a refresher course for relevant hazardous area competencies no less than every three years.
Chemicals are used extensively in workplaces. Many products such as paint, plastics, adhesives, detergents, and pharmaceuticals are derived from chemicals, some of which could potentially be harmful. However, for many toxic chemicals, the health effects may take a long period of time to develop.
If you take a look around your workplace, or even your home, you may be surprised at how many substances are present which are classified as hazardous and have the potential to affect your health or the health of those around you.
Managing Hazardous Substances teaches you how to identify hazardous substances at the workplace and the typical control measures that you need to implement to manage these risks.
Your ability to identify Hazardous Substances and following the correct safety procedures will reduce potential risks and hazards.
