The EMKG takes all of the health risks which are listed in the Hazardous Substances Ordinance into account. In addition to direct contact with hazardous substances - inhalation or skin contact, for example - this also includes the risk of fire and explosion.
By combining easily accessible parameters from safety data sheets and site inspections, the EMKG enables the rapid and precise determination of an appropriate control strategy for every risk. Unacceptable health risks are revealed and appropriate recommendations for action are issued.
The EMKG offers control guidance sheets for each control strategy in the form of two-page check lists which provide support with the implementation of measures.
The EMKG consists of three control strategies.
As an EMKG user, you will find both general information on the EMKG as well as several work aids, enabling you to apply the appropriate occupational safety measures in your organisation quickly and precisely.
