BASEQUIM is a database that includes guidance specifically developed for occupations and working environments in which there is a high risk of exposure to dangerous chemical agents. It is available on the Hazardous Work Situations portal at http://stp.insht.es:86/stp/. The National Institute for Safety and Health at Work (INSHT) provides, as part of this database, specialised technical information on the prevention of risks. Guidelines provide information about several topics, including the work situation, possible damage to health, consequences and symptoms of the occupation and exposure to dangerous substances, and prevention measures and training.
In addition, the database offers information about laws and technical guidance. All of the content has been prepared by a group of experts in the field of occupational risk prevention. It is based on bibliographic sources, which are also indicated in the manual. The BASEQUIM database is an essential tool for all occupational risk prevention services.
