The Side-Effects of Making the 5 Big Chemical Safety Mistakes

Updated: May 4

Hello, my name is Dale and I'm the Founder of the International Association for Chemical Safety (IACS) Today I want to talk to you about the side-effects of poorly handled chemical safety in the workplace. These are the things the safety authorities don't want you to know! I also want to tell you about - The new COSHH Risk Assessor Certification™.

I created this FREE accreditation course to tackle the incredibly massive number of chemical safety mistakes that happen all over the UK. The best thing is, this free course will immediately replace the currently lacking training provision from the very authorities who claim to have your safety as their top priority. They don't, by the way. Proven by how they refuse to tell you whether your risk assessments are good enough. My free accreditation course went live in March 2019 and is created solely for the purpose of ensuring the safety of your employees, your workplace and your business' complete and proper chemical safety compliance.

Do you need this training? If you use safety data sheets in any way, then yes, it is highly likely you need this training. Why? Current training is bare-bones and doesn't actually test whether you are capable of assessing a risk and then creating a proper risk assessment and implementing the correct control measures.

The COSHH Risk Assessor Certification™ will ensure that everyone who works at your site will be competent and able to handle any and all incidents that could happen. Without specific training, you and your workforce are unable to identify the risks that you are exposed to and are unable to protect yourselves and your workmates from those risks.


Without that specific training your risk assessments will fail and when risk assessments fail, accidents inevitably happen. Accidents in the workplace bring with them a whole lot of stress and unfavourable attention for you and your business. And you may never know, until it is too late, that the blame can and will be laid squarely at your feet. According to the safety authorities, ignorance is no excuse. Even when said ignorance is their doing. One company in the UK was fined for 6 breaches of the COSHH Regulations for a total of £130,000. This company, unfortunately, didn't know that they weren't completely compliant. Why? Because current chemical safety training is inadequate and they didn't know how to avoid making the big mistakes. Fortunately, it's not too late for you and your business. With my COSHH Risk Assessor Certification™, you can avoid making those same mistakes and being prosecuted for them.

I want to quickly tell you about Steve.

Steve is the director of a large and successful company.

The company paid for very expensive and inadequate chemical safety training and all of Steve's team attended. Great, right? Wrong. When his team returned, Steve found that they now knew how to spot and identify risks but still had no idea how to actually create a proper risk assessment, what the assessment should include or even what a proper assessment looks like. So Steve's business just forked out thousands of their Great British Pounds and lost 2 days of work... for nothing. If an accident happens, Steve's team still don't know what to do and his workplace is at even greater risk because of it. Thankfully Steve has since heard about the new COSHH Risk Assessor Certification™ and has signed up his whole team!

Be like Steve. Ensure the safety and well-being of your employees and your business.
