Présentation du cours

Risk management associated with the use of chemical substances in the workplace has gained great relevance from international and national regulations and from the interest of people and companies for protection against the potential effects of chemical substances. For this reason, the ILO with the cooperation of the European Union has developed this virtual course that will provide tools to manage these risks in the workplace.
