||Regulations concerning chemical hazards and the need to ensure occupational safety and health led a large French university hospital to implement a system for evaluating toxicological occupational hazards in medical laboratories. Chemical hazards were identified and characterized using the risk phrases contained in material safety data sheets and the hazards were ranked in importance using an algorithm. Exposure assessment was carried out by in situ observations for the most hazardous chemicals and risk indices were developed to allow the determination of unacceptable exposure conditions.
