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. The French, German, Spanish and Italian versions of the video will be published shortly.
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.
To protect workers' health, ESIG has just published two videos explaining how to calculate occupational exposure limits of hydrocarbon solvents thanks to the Reciprocal Calculation Procedure.
