Hazardous materials in the workplace can encompass a wide range of different things, from corrosive chemicals to flammable liquids, gases and even asbestos. Knowing how to use and handle these materials safely so as not to cause injury or health problems to yourself and others is paramount. In some situations, such as finding asbestos on site, the safest move might be to trust the handling of it to a trained and properly equipped specialist. If you’re concerned that the employees of your workplace might not have the necessary level of training to safely handle and use hazardous materials, it’s worth having an AMCOSH hazardous materials consultant visit your worksite to complete an audit of your handling and usage practices.
