Recovery Partners can provide consultancy on all these regulatory requirements with chemical management.
Our most popular services requested are:
• Risk assess a hazardous chemical and create a Safe Work procedure – we would do this as a tutorial with a nominated employee so direction can be continued in house to do the same with other high risk chemicals over a period of time.
• Conduct a general site hazard identification process, enter all identified hazards (excluding individual chemicals) into a hazard register. Risk assess all identified hazards and create risk control action plans. The hazard register is a live document where you can emulate the processes we begin and use ongoing as other hazards are identified over a period of time.
• Chemicals / Hazardous Substances Training Programs specifically developed and delivered to meet your operational needs.
