Hazardous Chemicals

Streamline your control of substances hazardous to health

Compliance and continuous improvement of hazardous chemical management within occupational health and safety

The control of substances hazardous to health is inextricably linked to occupational health and safety management. Therefore, do not allow these topics to be managed separately. A management system in line with ISO 45001 provides the appropriate framework to act under REACH and CLP, as well as to manage hazardous chemicals in a comprehensive, systematic, consistent and transparent manner through coordinated processes, responsibilities and the associated documentation.

Our whitepaper serves as a comprehensive resource addressing crucial aspects of hazardous substance management:

  • Overview of European obligations: The whitepaper explains how legal compliance can be ensured and the necessity of safe handling of substances hazardous to health can be promoted beyond the operational area.
  • Step-by-step guide through ISO 45001: The whitepaper guides you step by step through the chapters of ISO 45001 and explains the respective starting points for efficient integrated hazardous substance management.
  • Checklist for status quo assessment: The whitepaper concludes by offering a practical checklist to assess the current status of your hazardous substance management, which you can use to monitor and optimize the implementation of your projects systematically.
