What is a chemical risk assessment:

A chemical risk assessment reviews the potential hazards of a given chemical and what to do to avoid exposure or injury. In addition, the chemical risk assessment must explain which protective equipment should be used in connection with handling the chemical, where the first aid kit is located, how to store a chemical and dispose of the chemical, etc.

A chemical risk assessment is based on the following:
  1. Which substances and materials are dangerous and in what way?
  2. How and to which extend are employees exposed to the materials?
  3. How do you use the materials, e.g. mixing and application methods?
  4. Which preventive measures, e.g. sealing, airing, ventilation and use of protective equipment, should you take?

What is a exposure limit value?

A chemical exposure limit value is the maximum permissible concentration of a dangerous chemical substance and the highest level a worker must be exposed to. The chemical threshold limit value is indicated in ppm (parts per million), mg/m3 (milligrams per cubic metre of air) or in fibres/cm3 (fibres per cubic centimetre of air).

There is a difference in the allowed threshold limit value for each country, requiring insight into local legislation to know the allowed limit value. We regularly update the threshold limit values, and you can always find the current limit value on this page after you have logged in.
