About Diisocyanates Training for Managers

Diisocyanates can pose substantial health and safety risks when not handled properly. This training programme helps managers and supervisors keep operations safe and protect employees working with diisocyantes from the risks of exposure.

The course explains diisocyanates, including their properties, applications and potential hazards. It also covers legislation surrounding diisocyanate use. This knowledge will allow managers to safely supervise activities involving diisocyanates, implement effective control measures and respond appropriately should an incident happen.

Managers who complete the course will fulfil the requirements for training under UK REACH regulations.

Why is Diisocyanates Training for Managers Important?

Chronic exposure to diisocyanates may lead to severe conditions such as asthma, hypersensitivity pneumonitis and cancer. In extreme cases, exposure may even prove to be fatal. To prevent these risks, managers must know how to supervise the proper handling of diisocyanates. They must also ensure that all employees undertake training to use diisocyanates and follow safety guidelines.

This training programme equips managers with the knowledge and skills to identify exposure risks, mitigate health hazards and implement control measures to ensure a safe working environment for their employees. Managers learn how to reduce the potential risks associated with diisocyanates, protect the health of employees and ensure operations run without incident or delay.

Are You Aware of Your Legal Responsibilities?

The UK regulation on the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) makes diisocyanates training mandatory for all professional and industrial employees handling or using products containing more than 0.1% monomeric diisocyanates.

As a manager, it is your legal responsibility to ensure that all employees at risk of diisocyanate exposure receive training for safe diisocyanates use and handling. You are also responsible for implementing safety measures and ensuring all regulatory requirements are met.

In addition to REACH, you must also act in accordance with the following legislation:

  • Health and Safety at Work Act (HSWA) 1974
  • Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations (MHSWR) 1999
  • Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations (COSHH) 2002
  • Classification, Labelling, and Packaging (CLP) Regulation 2008

Non-compliance can lead to severe consequences, including fines, penalties, criminal charges and operational disruptions due to enforcement actions.

Frequently Asked Questions

Diisocyanate Training for Managers helps individuals in supervisory roles develop a comprehensive understanding of diisocyanates and the potential health risks. It also covers relevant legislation and your duties as a manager. You’ll learn safe diisocyanate handling, storage and management practices to ensure legal compliance and your employees’ safety.

As a manager, you are responsible for ensuring that employees are adequately trained, safety measures are in place and all regulatory requirements are being met. You are also responsible for overseeing incident reporting and taking immediate action should an incident happen.

Yes. Training is mandatory for anyone who uses substances containing a diisocyanate concentration greater than 0.1% for professional or industrial purposes.

The regulations for diisocyanates include:

  • UK Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH)
  • Health and Safety at Work Act 1974
  • Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999
  • Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations (COSHH) 2002
  • Classification, Labelling, and Packaging (CLP) Regulation 2008.

Polyurethane products will not be prohibited under the new UK REACH restriction. Instead, the restriction focuses on safety training requirements for individuals handling products with more than 0.1% diisocyanate concentrations.
