Workplace safety depends on risk awareness. Employers and workers need to know what dangerous substances are in the workplace and how to deal with them. This e-fact offers hints for successful communication in the workplace about dangerous substances, including the use of safety data sheets, and provides a list of sources of further information. It outlines how two new regulations on chemicals aim to improve communication about the risks of dangerous substances at workplaces. These are on registration, evaluation and authorisation of chemicals (REACH) and classification, labelling and packaging (CLP).

After a short introduction to nanomaterials and the safety and health risks they present to workers, this e-fact describes and compares a number of tools that can be used by employers, together with workers, to manage these risks in the workplace, and details the prevention measures recommended.

This checklist accompanies the e-fact on the same topic and aims to help identify the potential hazards to workers’ safety and health associated with the planning and construction of green buildings, their maintenance, renovation (retrofitting), demolition, and on-site waste collection. It also gives examples of preventive measures to address these hazards. Some of these OSH hazards are new compared with traditional construction sites and are associated with new green materials, technologies or design. Other hazards are well-known to the construction sector but they arise in new situations or combinations associated with green buildings and therefore demand particular consideration.

This e-fact provides information on the work-related risk factors and the occupational safety and health (OSH) issues associated the planning and construction of green buildings, their maintenance, renovation (retrofitting), demolition, on-site waste collection. Some of these OSH risks are new compared with traditional construction sites and are associated with new green materials, technologies or design. Other risks are well-known to the construction sector but they arise in new situations or combinations associated with green buildings and therefore demand particular consideration.

Small-scale and domestic solar energy installations are widely used but only scant attention has been given to the associated occupational safety and health (OSH) aspects so far. Many workers’ groups in various types of workplaces and sectors are involved with such systems along their life cycle. This checklist accompanies the e-fact on the same topic and aims to help identify the potential hazards to workers’ safety and health from small-scale and domestic solar energy systems throughout their life cycle, from manufacturing, installation and maintenance to decommissioning and recycling. It also gives examples of preventive measures to address these hazards.

From their manufacturing, transport, installation and maintenance to decommissioning and recycling, many workers’ groups in various types of workplaces and sectors are involved with such systems. This e-fact provides information on the work-related risk factors and OSH issues associated with domestic and small-scale solar energy installations across their life cycle.

Environmental tobacco smoke exposure – also known as second-hand smoke exposure – is a significant cause of mortality, morbidity and disability in the EU. Occupational ETS exposure refers to exposure at the workplace to tobacco smoke produced by others. The smoke can be produced by customers as well as by colleagues. However in Europe it is rare for workers to be exposed to ETS produced by colleagues, as the majority of EU Member States have implemented a smoking ban at workplaces. The hotel and catering sector is, however, an exception as many Member States do not yet have a complete smoking ban in restaurants, bars, etc. This E-fact is inetended for employers. It describes health and economic aspects of ETS exposure, as well as it provides an advice about creating smoke-free workplaces and helping smoking workers to quit.

Environmental tobacco smoke (ETS) is a complicated mix of substances and chemicals found in the indoor air as a direct result of tobacco smoking. Other than being a nuisance, long-term exposure to ETS is also linked to an increased risk of cancer, respiratory and cardiovascular disease. In the European Union (EU), over half a million deaths per year are estimated to relate to smoking, about 79,000 of which are thought to relate to ETS exposure alone. This e-fact is designed to assist and advise workers and workplaces in relation to the potential harm caused by ETS, make some comments relating to the EU legal situation and give information and advice about how to avoid ETS exposure. In reality, a combination of multiple approaches carried out by different mixes of people in worksites is likely to be required to effect sustained change for the better.
