The Diploma in Chemical Handling – Level 4 will teach learners on chemical handling in everyday life. A chemical refers to a form of matter that has a constant chemical composition and characteristic properties. Chemicals cannot be separated into components physically and exist in solids, liquids, gases or plasma forms.

Household items such as soaps, detergents, toothpaste, salt, sugar and bleaching powder are all chemicals. Most of the natural changes that occur in the world are also due to some chemical reaction. It is also responsible for providing heat and power, telecommunications and media.
It is true that chemicals have become a huge part of our day to day lives. However, along with the benefits they also tend to have some drawbacks that have to be considered while handling chemicals.
