Field Study on a Future Module "Fire and Explosion Risks" for an Easy-to-use Control Scheme for Hazardous Substances at the Workplace (EMKG)

Project number: F 2265 Institution: Federal Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (BAuA) Status: Completed Project


The module "Fire and Explosion Risks" will complement the control banding tool EMKG and shall assist small and medium-sized enterprises in risk assessment for physico-chemical risks arising from handling of hazardous substances at workplaces. In a transdisciplinary field study a test version of the module will be evaluated for practicability. New control guidance sheets for fire and explosion protection will be set up to ease communication of risk reduction measures.
