The Solvents@Work campaign is part of our continuous effort to encourage responsible and safe handling of solvents. This document gives you an overview of all the tools (videos, posters, guidelines etc.) that we have developed to help downstream users comply with the highest level of health, safety and environmental standards.
ESIG in collaboration with the UK Solvents Industry Association (SIA) have updated their Safe Handling of Solvents safety film (in English), replacing the one first released in 2006. This video enables users to identify health, safety and environmental hazards and to implement best practice to ensure safe handling.
Solvents are an invaluable solution for industries that range from pharmaceuticals and microelectronics to domestic cleaning, personal care and printing. Find out the variety of ways solvents are present in and enhance our everyday lives.
Measuring exposure to solvent vapours is key to understand whether the controls you have in place are sufficient to protect workers’ health. Learn about the available techniques and how to design effective measurement programmes for your workplace.
