Description

What are the dangers of cleaning products used in the cleaning of buildings? The Hazardous Substances Information System of the German statutory accident insurance association for the construction sector (BG BAU) (known as GISBAU) uses the software WINGIS to provide descriptions of chemicals used during cleaning, as well as for building and renovation. WINGIS provides support to companies in carrying out risk assessments and creating documentation.
GISBAU provides:

  • comprehensive information on hazardous substances used during construction, renovation and cleaning;
  • operating instructions in accordance with §14 of the German Hazardous Substances Ordinance.

A new mobile version allows the information to be used onsite and more easily than before. The risk assessment tool can be downloaded free of charge. It is available at http://appstore.com/gbbgbau
