Managing dangerous substances in the workplace
The seminar's main focus is to help delegates to understand the Healthy Workplaces Campaign 2018-2019 Manage Dangerous Substances and raise awareness of the nature and abundance of dangerous substances at work and the risks they pose.
Workers in all sectors are potentially at risk of exposure to dangerous substances. In fact, overall, 38 % of European enterprises report potentially dangerous chemical or biological substances in their workplaces. Therefore, it is vital that the risks are identified and managed.
The joint seminar on 23rd October 2018 is jointly organised by the Bradford Area Occupational Health and Safety Forum and the Enterprise Europe Network, to mark European Week of Health & Safety at Work.
The seminar will explain the implications of exposure to dangerous substances at work and provide practical solutions on how workplace exposure to dangerous substances can be eliminated or at least effectively managed to ensure the safety and health of workers and the economic success of businesses and society.
