The objective of the Chemical Safety programme by IGMPI is to impart training on how to identify chemical hazardous areas and where they exist around the facility. Personnel that will bring chemical hazards to the facility or engage in hazardous chemical work also need to complete the extended chemical safety training.
Chemical Safety is achieved by undertaking all activities involving chemicals in such a way as to ensure the safety of human health and the environment. It covers all chemicals, natural and manufactured, and the full range of exposure situations from the natural presence of chemicals in the environment to their extraction or synthesis, industrial production, transport use and disposal.
Chemical safety has many scientific and technical components. Among these are toxicology, ecotoxicology and the process of chemical risk assessment which requires a detailed knowledge of exposure and of biological effects.
Chemical hazards and toxic substances pose a wide range of health hazards (such as irritation, sensitization, and carcinogenicity) and physical hazards (such as flammability, corrosion, and explosibility). So we will learn here how to prevent ourselves from hazardous chemicals and what & which equipment should be used for various types of chemicals.
