legislation
Legislation
  • Workplace assessment (WA, APV)
  • If chemicals are used the Workplace assessment must be supplied with a Chemical WA
  • Law concerning working with chemicals and mixtures thereof
  • Law concerning carcinogenic compounds
slide3
Chemical WA sharpens the rules for registration of the hazard-classified chemicals which are used in the laboratory
slide4

Definition of substances and mixtures

Substances:

Pure chemical compounds

Mixtures (products or materials):

Contain more than one substance

slide5

Workplace manuals are required:

  • When substances and mixtures are used, which satisfy the criteria for classification as hazardeous according to the rules given by The Ministry of Environment
  • When substances and mixtures are used, which are on the Threshold Limit List from the Danish Working Environmet Authority (GV-listen)
  • When mixtures are used, which contain >= 1% of a substance mentioned in The Threshold Limit List – with a dust limit. (Exceptions: inert mineral dust, inert respirable mineral dust, total organic dust). (For gaseous materials >= 0,2%)
slide6

D) When materials are used which contain >= 1% of a compound which is classified as hazardeous or dangeous to the environment according to the rules given by The Ministry of Environment (for gaseous materials >= 0,2%)

___________________________________________________________

E) Stoffer og materialer omfattet af: (i) bek. 292 bliag III (epoxyharpikser og isocyanater). (ii) bek. 292, bilag IV (asfalt materialer). (iii) bek. 906 (kræft). (iv) bek 660 med ændringer (asbest).

___________________________________________________________

An increasing amount of entreprises chose to write workplace manuals to all chemicals. i.e. also chemicals which are not classified as hazardeous according to the rules mentioned above.

Carcinogenic compounds

If carcinogenic compounds are used, further rules apply:

The manual must contain information about the carcinogenic risk by working with the substance

The names of the substances must be mentioned in the manual

The container must be marked: Indeholder et stof, der er omfattet af dansk arbejdsmiljøregulering med hensyn til kræftrisiko (contain a substance which is regulated by the Danish Working Environment Authorities concerning carcinogenic risk)

slide9

Chemical Workplace Assessment (APV)

  • If there is hazardeous chemicals or materials on the workplace then the workplace assessment must contain the following assessment points:
  • The hazardeous properties of the substances and materials
  • The amount of exposure, type of exposure and how long it lasts
  • How the work with the hazardeous substances is performed including the used amount.
  • The effect of the precautions taken
  • If possible, the conclusions from the occupational medicine assessments
  • Threshold limits from The Danish Working Environment Authority
  • Material safety data sheet (MSDS) information concerning safety and health
slide10

Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) information in 16 sections

  • Chemical product and Company Identification
  • Composition, Information on Ingredients
  • Hazards Identification
  • First aid Measures
  • Fire Fighting Measures
  • Accidental Release Measures
  • Handling and Storage
  • Exposure controls. Personal Protection
  • Physical and Chemical Properties
  • Stability and Reactivity
  • Toxicological Information
  • Ecological Information
  • Disposal Considerations
  • Transport Information
  • Regulatory Information
  • Other Information
