Info sheet: Legislative framework on dangerous substances in workplaces


This info sheet provides an overview of the legislative framework on dangerous substances in workplaces in the European Union, with an emphasis on three European directives: OSH Framework Directive, Chemical Agents Directive (CAD) and the Carcinogens and Mutagens Directive (CMC).

Seven steps towards risk prevention are outlined, and a pool of free interactive e-tools for an easier risk assessment, such as OiRA, is provided.

The STOP principle, the hierarchy of prevention and measures to be taken after hazard identification are also put forward.
