Hazardous Substances Management

Effective hazardous materials management for safety in the workplace

Hazardous substances are present across a range of industries extending beyond the chemical sector or oil and gas. Some materials are not readily recognized as hazardous, despite the dangers they represent in certain contexts. To protect the people exposed to these substances, a legal framework has arisen to regulate how they are handled, processed and stored in the workplace. Many companies choose to take extra measures to ensure the safety of their workers and assets.
