Ensure safe-to-use chemicals, materials and products

With the Chemicals Strategy for Sustainability the European Union provides an important basis for the implementation of the United Nations Global Development Goals. A main focus is a safe and sustainable design of chemicals and materials. The German Federal Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (BAuA) contributes to this with its long-term strategic goal "Ensure safe-to-use chemicals and products". Although the focus of this discussion paper is on safe work, simultaneous consumer and environmental protection is strongly desired.
