The column model of TRGS 600 [1] as an assistance for the substitution check is already explained in several blog posts. I already introduced the columns dealing with health and environmental hazards. We now switch to hazardous substances that represent a hazard due to their physico-chemical effects. Physico-chemical effects (column 4) Column 4 of

If you work with hazardous substances in your company, you have some obligations that are listed in the GefStoffV [1]. For example, you must check substitution possibilities for your hazardous substances. The column model of TRGS 600 [2], which I already discussed in earlier articles, will help you with this. Today I would like

Anyone who has followed my blog posts over the last few weeks has certainly noticed that the topic of substitution testing is in focus. In particular, I have already discussed the column model of TRGS 600 [1] in general and column 2a (Acute health hazards). So the topic of today's blog post is obvious: Column

Designation in dangerous goods

By |2022-03-22T08:50:48+01:0014 March 2022|SDB-Profi, GefStoff-Profi|

Did you ever notice that there are differences in the designation of dangerous goods? Users and formulators of safety data sheets come into contact with the dangerous goods in section 14 of the safety data sheet. Even with pure substances, but also with mixtures, there is often a different wording in section 14 than

In my last post I introduced the column model of the German TRGS 600 [1] as a tool for substitution testing. In this and the upcoming posts, I would like to go more into detail about the individual columns. Today I will deal with column 2a of the column model, which is about acute

Current software in hazardous substance management

By |2022-03-22T08:48:01+01:0028 February 2022|GefStoff-Profi|

Hazardous substance management software, such as our Gefahrstoff-Profi, is used to record, approve and assign hazardous substances. The results are legally compliant risk assessments, up-to-date hazardous substance registers / hazardous substance directories and, of course, the easily updated local operating instructions. But what if the software for updating is no longer up to date?

Fire and explosion hazard with hazardous substances (Part 1 of 2)

By |2022-02-14T15:40:23+01:0014 February 2022|GefStoff-Profi|

The fire and explosion hazard is a key factor in determining whether or not the hazardous substance is suitable for one's business. For example, there may be no local exhaust ventilation or the area could be poorly ventilated in general. In this case, it may be worth avoiding substances or processes that pose a

Fire and explosion hazard with hazardous substances (Part 2 of 2)

By |2022-02-14T15:41:33+01:0014 February 2022|GefStoff-Profi|

It is important to be able to assess the fire and explosion hazards posed by the hazardous substances used. This is in order to design a safe working environment. In the first part of this series, I already discussed recognisability through classification, labelling and other sources. In this article I will look at references
