About the course

General information

  • Why take this course

    Progressively eliminating hazardous chemicals used in the production process and ensuring a safe working environment for employees is a key priority in the materials supply chain. However, many factories are struggling to implement a robust chemical management system (CMS). In particular, chemical hazards and the risks they pose to workers and the environment are not always well identified and analyzed to take the appropriate measures to safely store, handle and dispose chemicals.

  • Course description

    Throughout this module, we have adopted a very practical approach to help you understand the characteristics of a safe and well-organised chemical storage area. In particular, we will look at common chemical storage practices observed in the production sites to explain what is acceptable and what is not. In the same way, we will point out situations where workers can be exposed to chemicals and suggest solutions to better protect them. Finally, we will discuss the factory’s policies for temporary management of chemical waste on-site.

  • Why learn with us

    Our tutor has strong field experience after spending several years in Asia visiting factories. She is a specialist in chemical and environmental topics in the textile industry. We have developed engaging e-learning content that guarantees learner motivation and knowledge acquisition. We also include scenario-based or practical assignments that allow you to apply your knowledge and get personalised feedback. Finally, you will have unlimited access to learning content and resources.
