I would like to thank Rob for diligently designing the course. The presentations were easy to follow and directly addressed the topic clearly conveying the message. The topics were supported by examples and explanations making it more user friendly.

The course was easily accessible and I learnt a lot in two hours, rather than sitting in a room for 6 hours in front of someone talking to 10-15 people. I gained a lot of knowledge from this course. Thank you.

Thanks Rob. Great course, only complicated by my old lap top but all fixed now by IT.

After spending time working with Rob on a recent handover I enrolled in the “Chemical Awareness and spill training with WHS Regulations” online training course provided by Workplace Chemistry. I found the content was of good quality and easy to follow. I’d recommend the online training to both those looking to start work in the laboratory environment and those looking for a refresher course.

This course is excellent. It is easy to follow, understand and very user friendly. I found it to be a great refresher course as well as learning some new information.

I found the course to be very educational, it contains plenty of valuable information, is interactive to keep you engaged, is provided in an easy-to-follow format and uses terminology that could be understood by those with less experience in the field through to Health and Safety Advisors. I would highly recommend this course for anyone wanting to gain knowledge in chemical awareness, spill training and the relevant WHS regulation, or for this who work with chemicals, or manage staff who work with chemical.

I am the Safety Officer for the Faculty of Science at the University of Newcastle. I have used the online Chemical Safety and Spill Training Courses over the last two years, for both staff and research student training. I recommend using this website for chemicals safety training and chemical spill training.

To be honest, this was my first online class. I am looking forward to taking more online classes. The course was well paced, and pitched at a level which allowed me to learn quickly, and in depth without becoming to bogged down.

I really enjoyed this course! It was very easy to follow and I loved the interactive aspects of the slides to keep me focussed.

Alyssa CarrollNewcastle, NSW.

I really enjoyed this course. I work in a high school science laboratory and found it most helpful in understanding the differences between chemical registers, manifests and placarding. It was great to see examples of chemical spills both large scale and small scale and to see the destruction they can cause, and to see how to clean them up. I appreciated the quick email response when I was having trouble with my login. Thank you!

The online Chemical Awareness and Spill Training course was relevant to our workplace. It was easy to navigate and the simple enrolment process for 11 of our employees is a good option where they can complete it in their own time.

Arranging the course for our onsite Facilities Management staff was really quick and easy and the reporting allowed us to track the completion of the staff training. I would definitely recommend Workplace Chemistry, and we will be using them again.

The feedback I have received so far is the course is easy to navigate through and people like how it’s broken into sections. I found it very informative and well delivered.

Great course, really enjoyed the modular layout where a lot of other training courses could take some important notes from the way this course has been undertaken.

So far all of my staff have said the course is very informative and more specific to our work than other chemical training that has been provided in the past.
