What our clients say about our Chemical Safety Workshops

Rob provided requisite chemical safety training at a suitable level that both engaged, and was comprehended by our operational staff.

Doug ClelandSite Manager - RutherfordEnviropacific Services

MidWaste engaged Rob from Workplace Chemistry to run two Hazardous Waste training sessions in our region on recommendation from a trainer who had to pull out at the last minute. All communication and logistics were dealt with very professionally and the training was well received by all the participants. It was a great opportunity for operational staff to network and learn at the same time. I would not hesitate to recommend Rob as a trainer – he has great experience and a very easy approachable manner.

The feedback I received from your training was very positive, they liked the relevant stories you presented and the hands on training. “We got practical skills from it (how to clean up a spill) and info on shipping and different classes of hazards etc”.

The team gave me great feedback... even those who didn't really want to attend. Everyone noted that they were out of date with their knowledge of managing chemicals in the workplace and liked doing the spill practical. Thanks again for your help!
