Dangerous Substances e-tool

Updated: Nov 15, 2020

Find and reduce the safety and health hazards associated with dangerous substances and chemical products in workplaces within your company.

Does your business use dangerous substances? Are you fully aware of your legal obligations? The European Agency for Safety & Health at Work dangerous substances e-tool can help. It is an interactive web-based guide that provides employers with the support and advice they need to effectively manage dangerous substances in the workplace.

Based on your input, it provides tailored and easy-to-understand background and good practice information, for example on risks, labelling, legislation, prevention measures and much more. The e-tool generates a report related to your individual business situation on the management of dangerous substances, including recommendations for improvement.

You can either start with a very short (Quick Start) questionnaire with seven questions or immediately start with a more detailed questionnaire of 36 questions. If you use the long questionnaire, you can save your answers and continue later. Once you have completed the long questionnaire, you can print a report, ‘My Chemical Guide’ that includes your answers, a to-do checklist and recommendations for good practices and measures.
