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

    This module "Chemical risk assessment and inventory" is one of many modules that make up the Chemical Management System e-learning course. This module is designed to provide a good understanding of how to conduct a risk assessment in order to understand the level of risk each chemical pose, how the workers can be affected (e.g. through inhalation or contact with the skin) and the situations in the factory that require greater attention to reduce the potential negative effects on the workers’ health.
