A chemical risk assessment is an overall risk assessment of the working conditions of employees working with dangerous substances and materials. Among other things, the assessment must take into account what dangerous substances and materials are used and formed through various work processes, how the employees may be exposed to them (through inhalation, skin contact, etc.), and what health and safety risks are involved in using the chemicals.
Many problems in working with dangerous chemistry are due to employees working with the substances not being adequately trained or instructed. The workplace must therefore use the chemical risk assessment as a starting point when employees are trained and instructed in working with dangerous chemistry, and the employer must supervise the work.
