Approved Handler Training Courses - Sth Auckland and Gore

06 November 2013

The TPC will be conducting further HSNO Approved Handler courses in November 2013.

If you are a user of timber preservatives and anti-sapstain chemicals it is most likely that you are required to have certified approved handlers for your site for the purposes of health and safety and environmental protection. This is a requirement of the Hazardous Substances & New Organisms (Personnel Qualifications) Regulations. Please feel free to check with me if you are unsure of your status.

Who should attend? Managers and Supervisors are people who should attend.

 Approved handlers have a responsibility to know how timber preservatives and anti-sapstains used at their sites should be stored and handled, the potential hazards posed by each and the regulations under which they are used. Because aspects of the use of the preservatives and anti-sapstains require supervision and management, those attending should be in positions of responsibility in terms of these products on site. Those attending should be familiar with the provisions of The Best Practice Guideline for the Safe Use of Timber Preservatives and Anti-sapstain Chemicals
