The Diploma in Chemical Handling Level 4 will give you an understanding of hazardous chemicals, how to identify them and how to ensure that they are used safely. Chemicals are often used in the workplace, but are they used safely? The course will equip you with the basic understanding on how to avoid injury related to chemicals and illnesses.

We use various forms of chemicals in our everyday lives. And there are many benefits to using chemicals. However, they also have drawbacks particularly when handling them. Chemicals can affect the environment and cause irrevocable damages. If you are handling chemicals you should have a firm understanding on the safety procedures and protocols.

The Diploma in Chemical Handling Level 4 will focus on key topics such as introduction to hazard communication, hazard classification and different types of chemical hazards. If you want to become a chemist or forensic scientist you will find this course highly effective. It is comprehensive and the sound knowledge you will receive will give you the confidence to progress in your career.
