RISKOFDERM: risk assessment of occupational dermal exposure to chemicals: the development of a toolkit for risk assessment and risk management
van Hemmen, J.J.
Dermal exposure to industrial chemicals during work is of major concern in the risk assessment of chemicals. Current approaches in procedures for European legislation are not based on experimental data of dermal exposure in the workplace because they are lacking. A project was funded to overcome this problem. In this paper an overview is given of an important part of the project: the development of a risk assessment and risk management Toolkit for dermal exposure. The Toolkit assesses potential risk of dermal exposure for workplaces, especially in small and medium enterprises. The Toolkit contains textual information on the skin and on (risks of) skin exposure, and is available from the net and on CD-rom.
