You can use this template to make an inspection on proper handling, depositing, and disposal of hazardous chemical substances. Start with a description of the worksite activity and write down hazardous chemicals being handled. Check if workers are wearing appropriate PPE and are trained to surround the emergency methods. Inspect the chemical containers to guarantee packages are marked clearly and in good condition. Assess if hazardous chemicals are stored correctly. Observe the waste disposal method and guarantee that standard operating procedures are served. End the inspection by providing final safety instruction and areas for development.
