Whether you are a gardener, scientist, cleaner or any other job that involves storing poisonous chemicals, it is important that you understand how dangerous they are and how to store them safely after use in order to avoid injury or a work accident.
Should you receive training on how to store poisonous chemicals?
If your job involves using and then storing harmful chemicals then yes, you should receive training. By having someone show or demonstrate how to store poisonous chemicals safely, it will be easier for you to stay safe and potentially prevent a work accident from occurring.
When should you receive the training to avoid an accident at work?
In order to prevent an accident at work you should receive training on how to store poisonous chemicals safely right at the start, before you start working with them. This means that you have an understanding of them and that there is less risk of sustaining a nasty work injury. The sooner you receive training, the sooner you and the company are safer from harm.
If the company works on the basis of learning as you go, the risk of an accident at work is much higher as you may not be aware of how to handle or store the harmful chemicals.
