Approved Handler Knowledge Training

Do you think you need it? Chemsafety can help

  • Chemsafety offers Approved Handler training that covers the substances that you use.
  • Chemsafety's approved handler courses address the specific requirements of your substances 
  • Chemsafety's has been providing approved handler training since 2006, and has three Test Certifiers on staff. 
  • Chemsafety's open courses include attendees from a variety of industries – users of similar substances are grouped together 
  • Training is held in Chemsafety’s seminar room with catered lunches, or at your premises. 
  • Chemsafety’s presenters are chemistry graduates (but we won’t bamboozle you with jargon) with many years experience assessing chemical storage and handling across a broad range of New Zealand workplaces. 
  • What about other personnel?
    Those not requiring approved handler training will still benefit from our “general chemical safety and awareness” courses. Don’t forget training is required under the Health & Safety in Employment Act. 
  • Other training topics include:
    • Safety data sheets, exempt laboratory, HSNO for managers, asbestos awareness, workplace air quality and noise. 

Not all hazardous substances require approved handlers.  You may be able to manage quantities below the threshold, please discuss your situation with one of Chemsafety’s HSNO specialists.

Chemsafety can only certify classes 2-5, 6, 8, 9.  We are unable to certify agrichemicals, pesticides, explosives or veterinary medicines.
