Hazardous materials are chemical substances, that if released or misused, can pose a threat to the environment or personal health.
Hazardous materials in the workplace require a diligent and consistent approach to identify, assess and control exposure.
Most commonly this term is used for the management of chemicals, lead, mould and asbestos. The term can also be applied to management of clandestine laboratories and volatile organic compounds.
