Occupational safety and health measures in this field are aimed at protecting employees and other people from exposure to and the effects of the hazardous substances that exist in all areas of working life. Seminar participants learn which substances are classified as hazardous, what hazardous characteristics such substances have (toxic, inflammable, corrosive or irritating) and what their chemical and physical properties are.
Seminars in the hazardous substances practical facility use demonstration experiments and simulated work situations to examine the problems posed by such substances. The subjects covered include the use of personal protective equipment and implementation of the organisational measures necessary for dealing with hazardous substances.
Measurement methods suitable for risk assessment and for any hazardous-substance measurements required as a result of a risk assessment are also presented. With a range of different simulated workplace atmospheres, participants work on how to conduct workplace measurements, sampling strategy and assessment of compliance with the applicable exposure limits.
