Safely handling hazardous substances – but how?

Hazardous substances can be found in all areas of working life. The aim of OSH is to protect insured persons and third parties from the negative effects of hazardous substances. Participants learn about what is classified as a hazardous substance, which hazard classes apply (flammable, toxic, carcinogenic, corrosive, etc) and which chemical or physical properties these substances have.

Seminars in the Hazardous Substances Interactive Facility use demonstration experiments and simulated work situations to examine the problems posed by such substances. The seminar also covers selecting and using the right personal protective equipment, as well as the organisational measures that need to be put in place to deal with hazardous substances. Suitable measurement strategies for conducting risk assessments and measuring hazardous substances are also presented.
