Working with Hazardous Chemicals Workshop

Why do this course?
All businesses and undertakings must provide information, training, instruction and supervision to everyone who works with or may come into contact with any hazardous chemical. These are legal requirements under WHS legislation. Courtenell’s awareness course is an integral part of fulfilling this requirement.
While there is an accredited ticket for the safe handling of hazardous chemicals, this course is an awareness course for persons who may come into contact with hazardous chemicals in their work duties but whom ordinarily do not work with hazardous chemicals as part of their job (and therefore do not need to have the accredited ticket.)
Course Aims
