The "Assessment Unit for Occupational Safety and Health of Workers" (in short "REACH Assessment Unit OSH") is responsible for promoting the protection of workers during their handling of chemicals.

The foundation for this kind of chemical management is formed by data regarding the toxi-cology, exposure and occupational health information of the substances. This data is used to compile a risk description. On this basis, a risk assessment is conducted, which is followed by the development of a targeted risk management.

The selection of the most suitable risk management measures is influenced by socio-economic impacts of the measures. The socio-economic analysis (SEA) covers the economic, social and environmental impact of measures.
