EU-OSHA Database Collects Tools, Guidance on “Dangerous Substances” 
A new database launched by the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work, or EU-OSHA, contains more than 700 tools and guidance documents on managing dangerous substances. The database is intended to help organizations conduct comprehensive and effective risk assessments. Users can search content developed by EU member states, European institutions, business associations, and other groups to find information on topics such as training, risk assessment, carcinogens, substitution, and specific work operations.  The new database allows users to sort by specific countries, sectors, work tasks, or hazards, and contains resources for a variety of audiences, including those who manage people who work with dangerous substances. The database is available online. For more information, read EU-OSHA’s press release.
