Chemical Management Guide

Improve Chemical Management to Gain Cost Savings, Reduce Hazards and Improve Safety

IPCS Geneva

The Chemical Management Guide was elaborated and published by GTZ-Pilot Project Chemical Safety in close cooperation with:
  • The bilateral Indonesian-German Project ProduksiH which is counseling small and medium sized enterprises in the wide field of cleaner production and good housekeeping.
  • The Pilot Programme for the Promotion of Environmental Management in the Private Sector of Developing Countries (P3U) who developed guides in the area of good housekeeping and environment-oriented cost management.
  • German Federal Institute for Occupational Safety and Health.
  • Tool 1 of the Guide is based wholly on the approach of the ILO Safe work chemical control Toolkit 2001, produced by the Geneva-based International Labour Organization working in collaboration with the International Occupational Hygiene Association (IOHA) and Health and Safety Executive (HSE) in the UK.

Enabling the companies to:

  • implement a framework for effective and preventive Chemical Management
  • move in the direction of continuous improvement

It does not replace legal requirements!

Step by step implementation

Step 1 – Identify “hot spots”

Step 2 – Make a comprehensive chemical inventory

Step 3 – Make improvement continuously

5 Tools to help implement step 1 - 3

IPCS Geneva

step 1 identify hot spots
Step 1- Identify hot spots

Walk through your company and make observations

  • Identify places of inefficient storage, handling, use and disposal of chemicals
  • Identify particularly hazardous situations where potential harm could be reduced or prevented – spotting waste, losses and risks.
  • Develop Action Plan

general observations from test implementation in five companies
General observations from test implementation in five companies

Leather tannery, paint manufacturer, textile mills, textile dyeing, towel manufacturer:

  • powdery dyestuffs should be replaced with granular or liquid dyestuff
  • drums containing solvents should be covered
  • appropriate tools and protection gear should be provided to workers
  • only products should be purchased by the companies, which are properly labeled, transfer containers within the production process should be labeled also.
  • companies should insist on provision of MSDS.

Main recommendations from applying the

Chemical Management Guide:

  • Reduce waste of dyestuffs in sampling
  • Improve handling of substances in the emulsion kitchen to avoid losses, expiry, and contamination
  • Identify substances that are particularly hazardous and look for substitutes
  • Remove chemicals not in immediate use from the working areas of the factory as much as possible
  • Ensure each department has a complete stock list

IPCS Geneva

Step 2 –

Make a comprehensive chemical inventory

Benefits from the inventory:

  • Provides information on the danger and risk of chemicals
  • Enables the companies to search for replacements – less dangerous and/or less costly materials
  • Gives possibility to monitor the use of the products – improvement of efficiency in material utilization
  • Ensures proper management within the company, dangerous chemicals can be treated appropriately.

IPCS Geneva

Step 3 – Make improvement continuously
  • Continue inventory and implementation of improvements
  • Replace dangerous chemicals for less toxic ones
  • Evaluate actions undertaken to determine if the set of objectives have been achieved
  • Communicate and reward results
  • Monitor results to ensure that improvements are maintained
  • Establish new target and areas for action in order to make further improvements in the company’s operations.
