It could be called a secretariat or, quite simply, a department; it just depends from which side of the world you are operating in. The meaning is altogether the same and you are encouraged to become an active stakeholder in this very important exercise. It is that important. Significantly so that ministries, secretariats and state or government departments are driving this through with legislation. Those who carelessly choose to not toe the line are severely reprimanded with a costly fine.
Worse case scenarios for offenders in some countries could be jail terms. Hazmat training is a best case scenario for participants in one global economic powerhouse’s localized industries and commerce. More than enough encouragement has already been given, no matter who you are, what business you run, what your manufacturing processes entail, and where you operate from, to ensure the safety and security of all those operating, working and communing within your business environment.
You must have seen the warning lights before. This global economic powerhouse is famous for such cases. There is spillage on a supermarket floor. Consequently, a customer slips in the hazardous puddle. And although no bones may have been broken, the customer is well within his or her rights to claim compensation by seeking recourse through the courts. The reality has been huge and costly liability claims for companies that place commuters’ lives at risk or initiated long-term and life-changing damage to those consumers.
Training in safety and security is no longer a once-off affair. New threats and hazards emerge every year. So it is therefore quite necessary for all stakeholders, from the store clerk to the business owner, to avail themselves to at least one training workshop per annum.
