||The substitution of dangerous chemicals is a preferred means of protection against occupational hazards. Besides lowering the risks to workers and improving their working conditions, a successful substitution also results in advantages for the enterprise, such as the changing of a process in favour of newer technology, lowering the costs of waste disposal and personal protection, and an improved image. This leaflet summarized the responsibilities of employers together with the approach to be followed for the successful substitution of dangerous chemicals.
