Portugal - Info point on recognising and managing dangerous substances
During the European Week for Safety and Health at Work, a three-day info point takes place at the Alma Shopping centre to present the Healthy Workplaces Manage Dangerous Substances campaign and inform the general public of the importance of OSH-related topics.
Participants are introduced to the risks posed by chemicals and receive informative material on identifying and managing dangerous substances. They learn about the importance of effectively managing of hazardous agents as well as the impact that harmful exposures can have on their health.
Finally, they get the opportunity to participate in an entertaining and instructive quiz that tests their knowledge and allows them to learn more about dangerous substances found in the workplace.
