||The first step when assessing chemical risk in factories is to collect data pertaining to substances or products used. A simplified method, based on responses proposed by industrial hygiene experts, has been developed for ranking "potential chemical risks" on the basis of information derived from safety data sheets and labels. This method is a valuable aid to chemical risk assessment and priority setting in factories when establishing risk prevention policies.
