Project description:

Risk assessment is required to be conducted for the handling and storing of dangerous goods before the establishing. The project was aiming to identify and rate the risks healthcare supplier storage facilities and healthcare settings, in order to recommend measures for operating the storage facilities in accordance to the German regulations. An evaluation of the risk associated with a hazard is necessary to determine if the risk is significant, in which case additional or improved measures will be required to control (prevent or minimise) exposure to the hazard. In addition to determining the level of significance of the risk, the risk assessment process serves to facilitate the decisions required for appropriate controls, training, air monitoring and health surveillance. The relevant German regulations were used for the classification and requirements of the water management Act and the Chemical Management Act and the related ordinances. Based on the classification the required mitigation measures on occupational and environmental safety and the necessary training have been identified.
