||2nd Quarter 2007, Vol.20, No.2, p.107-115. Illus. 39 ref.
||A systematic and comprehensive approach to assessing and managing allergen risks at workplaces has been developed. It relies on the cooperation and active communication during the whole process between management, employees and health care personnel, with the assistance of experts when needed. In addition to gathering background information, including allergic symptoms, through questionnaires addressed to the management and employees, hazard identification is also processed in the workplace through observations and measurements. The process must be carefully planned and documented to allow later follow-up and re- evaluation.
