Chlorine is used every day throughout Newfoundland and Labrador, in the maintenance of our water and wastewater treatment technologies to our recreational facilities. Chlorine is a dangerous chemical, and thus great care must be taken to ensure its proper use. This two day program has been developed to expand on the existing knowledge base of staff in the areas of chlorine handling and storage practices as well as response to leaking containers in a first response capacity.

The training facilitators are recognized as international experts in all classes of dangerous goods. The standards which have been employed for this program follow the tenants and specific best practice procedures set out by the Chlorine Institute of America.

The Chlorine Institute, Inc. exists: “to support the chlor-alkali industry and serve the public by fostering continuous improvements to safety and the protection of human health and the environment connected with the production, distribution and use of chlorine, sodium and potassium hydroxides, and sodium hypochlorite; and the distribution and use of hydrogen chloride. This support extends to giving continued attention to the security of chlorine handling operations. The Institute strives to meet these obligations by maintaining a scientific and technical organization that fully meets the needs and expectations of its members and the public.”

The structure of this program will be designed to provide the following:

  • An overview to the chemical and physical and physical properties of chlorine, hazards of chlorine exposure.
  • Leak detection, air monitoring.
  • Personnel Protective Equipment (Level A Suits)
  • Container handling practices.
  • Response procedures including decontamination procedures.
  • Hands-on practical component involving capping kits.

Those successfully completing the course will be issued a certificate by Safe Work Solutions Inc.
