Abstract Worker's protection is above all based on assessing the risks and introducing an appropriate prevention policy. Concerning chemical risks, this assessment is often difficult on account of the wide diversity of products and formulations used. To help enterprises faced with this problem, INRS, in collaboration with the French National Prevention and Protection Centre (CNPP), has developed a simplified method to assess the health, safety and environmental risks of chemicals that can be used by managers of small enterprises. The risk prevention departments of a number of enterprises in various sectors have applied this method, and the results obtained concur with the views of experts.
