Course content

Know the hazardous chemical substance

In this module, we go through hazardous material classifications, the various matter states in which they are typically present, physiochemical classification and the various health risks they pose.

Entry routes of hazardous chemical substances

This module focuses on the various ways harmful chemical substances can enter the body, and thus how to prevent them. Such includes inhalation, ingestion, skin absorption and open wounds.

Identification of hazardous chemical substances

We show learners the symbols, labelling and Material Safety Data Sheet of hazardous chemical substances.

Control of exposure to HCS

Learners are familiarised with the identification, evaluation and control of exposure to hazardous chemical substance.

Legislation

This module deals with the duties and responsibilities of employers, the duty to inform, duty of employees, duty to not interfere with, damage or misuse things, the prohibition of certain deductions, how to report to an inspector regarding certain incidents, forbidden victimization, acts or omissions by employees or mandatories, penalties, hazardous chemical substances regulations and disposal of HCS.

Assessment methods

We conduct a formative theoretical assessment at the beginning of the course to gauge the learner’s initial understanding (novices only). At the end of the training, a summative theoretical and practical application assessment is conducted, to find if the learner is competent; if not, additional developmental areas are identified and suggested.
