Abstract To discuss the issues of chemical hazards and the integration of safety aspects during the design phase, the French National Research and Safety Institute for the Prevention of Occupational Accidents and Diseases (INRS) invited interested parties to a workshop held on 1-2 July 2002 in Nancy, France. The objectives of the workshop were to present available solutions, to build the inventory of problems that need to be addressed and to explore pathways for future action. This article is a review of the papers presented at this workshop, grouped under the topics of hazard evaluation and the integration of prevention during design.
