The Solvents@Work campaign is part of our continuous effort to encourage responsible and safe handling of solvents.
It is a cornerstone of our product stewardship commitment.
Discover the many multi-lingual tools here that you can use in your workplace.
Measuring solvent vapour concentrations in the work environment
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.
Solvents and air quality
Discover how ESIG has engaged since its formation in 1996 in furthering the scientific and technical understanding on solvents and air quality contributing to reduce solvents’ VOC emissions.
Reciprocal Calculation Procedure (RCP) part 2: how to calculate an OEL based on RCP method
In this video we will explain how to calculate an OEL based on the RCP. To learn more on what the RCP is and how this has evolved, watch our...EN
Reciprocal Calculation Procedure (RCP) part 1: what hydrocarbon solvents and RCP are
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.
RCP for setting occupational exposure limits for hydrocarbon solvents
This paper from July 2017 provides an update on the application of the reciprocal calculation procedure (RCP) method to calculate occupational exposure levels for hydrocarbon solvents taking into account recent toxicological information and changes in regulatory requirements.
Managing the health risks of solvent exposure
Learn how best to manage health risks from exposure to solvents via inhalation of vapours and contact with the skin and eyes. This guide also helps to explain the European regulations around health risk management. This resource is especially useful for SMEs.
Static electricity is one of the main hazards associated with flammable solvents. Learn about the potential sources of static electricity and how to safely handle solvents in the workplace.
