Chemicals are used in almost all workplaces. Hazardous chemicals can pose a significant risk to worker health and safety. It is important that workers understand how to work safely with hazardous chemicals.

This Toolbox Talk topic provides information on how to identify hazardous chemicals and reduce the risk of exposure and is relevant to any workplace that uses hazardous chemicals.

Toolbox Talk information should be tailored to the workplace in accordance with this guidance material.  Once the Toolbox Talk has been communicated and employees have been consulted, and had their views heard, records of discussions and actions should be recorded on the Toolbox Talk Record Form.

Guidance notes are shown italicised.
