DuPont promotes safer dangerous substances management
23 July 2018
DUPONT SUSTAINABLE Solutions has partnered with EU-OSHA in the 2018-2019 Healthy Workplaces campaign, Manage Dangerous Substances.
The aim of the campaign is to raise awareness of the importance of putting a stop to risks arising from dangerous substances and to dispel common misunderstandings.
The campaign also intends to promote more effective risk assessments and prevention, provide a better understanding of the risks associated with exposure to carcinogens at work, and inform companies and workers of legislation that is in place to protect them.
The company became involved in developing the 1991 US OSHA regulation 1910.119 which governs the process safety management of highly hazardous chemicals.
DuPont Sustainable Solutions will work with EU-OSHA to develop information materials, share best practices, organise workshops and conferences that will enable companies to put in place better risk prevention measures to protect workers who come into contact with dangerous substances.
