Hagnýt verkfæri og leiðbeiningar um hættuleg efni

Aðildarríkin, Evrópustofnanir, fagfélög, aðilar vinnumarkaðarins og aðrir hafa búið til fjölda verkfæra og leiðbeininga til að hjálpa fyrirtækjum við að framkvæma áhættumat með ítarlegum og skilvirkum hætti. Verkfærin bjóða upp á fjölbreytta nálgun til að stjórna hættulegum efnum með skilvirkum hætti. Oft eru þau fyrir tiltekin störf, eins og að fylla á og dæla vökva eða verklag við málmsuðu. Önnur bjóða upp á ítarlegt yfirlit yfir ákveðinn hóp efna eins og næma, eða undirstrika hefðbundnar áhættur í ákveðnum atvinnugreinum.

Auk þess að styðja við vönduð áhættumöt innihalda flest verkfærin einnig hagnýtar lausnir og útskýringar á hvernig eigi að draga úr áhættum í algengum vinnuaðstæðum þar sem hættuleg efni koma við sögu. Einnig eru verkfæri til að styðja við störf ákveðinna aðila eins og vinnueftirlitsmanna, lítilla og meðalstórra fyrirtækja og fulltrúa starfsmanna ásamt mörgum öðrum. Svo það er vel þess virði að kynna sér síðuna til að komast að því hvaða hjálp sé í boði.
