Working With Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH)
If you haven’t already seen Breaking Bad you probably should. It’s about a terminally ill chemistry teacher who changes career and starts manufacturing recreational drugs in his camper van. Unfortunately, the substances he created were very, very harmful. Not to mention highly illegal. Your job probably isn’t quite so hazardous, or as illegal, as Walter White’s. You don’t have to be a drug dealer to work with chemicals and harmful substances though. Many jobs need access to them, and most workplaces store them. They can be very dangerous to work with, so learning how to handle and store them properly is essential.
