Hazardous Substances in the Workplace
Many hazardous substances are also dangerous goods. In
the Hazardous Substances in the Workplace manual provided in the
EMP training programme the distinction between the two types of
chemicals is explained. There are differences in classifying,
identifying, storing and handling of dangerous goods; these differences
are also explained. There is no difference in the assessment of
health risks for both hazardous substances and dangerous goods.
When assessing health risks for dangerous goods the responsibilities
and procedures detailed in the manual for hazardous substances
should be equally applied.
