Description

Working safely with hazardous chemicals requires adherence to strict safety procedures and the use of specially-designed protective equipment.

Overview/Description

Working safely with hazardous chemicals requires adherence to strict safety procedures and the use of specially-designed protective equipment.

Before working with any chemicals, an assessment of the way in which the worker will interact with them will need to be made, for example, how hazardous are they? Will the worker be wading through chemicals, pouring them from a bottle into a test tube, or will particulates be in the air? Depending on the hazardous nature of the chemical, appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) may need to be worn by individual members of staff, and all such PPE will need to comply with regulations and be used in line with the manufacturer’s instructions. Examples of PPE against chemicals include chemical suits, footwear, hand protection, and eye protection. For some hazardous situations, suits must be used in conjunction with gloves, boots, head/face protection, and breathing apparatus. Some suits, particularly gas-tight or type 1, can be supplied with gloves and boots attached. Some variants allow the gloves and boots to be detachable but for other suits, the gloves and boots are permanently attached. Course Content
