||According to the Polish Labour Code, employers are legally obliged to provide workers with information about occupational safety and health hazards. Maximum allowable concentrations (MAC) and the results of determining chemicals in workplace air are used for assessing occupational exposure and risk. A computer-assisted system, "STER", developed in the Central Institute for Labour Protection is described; it helps to analyse all the information to identify the hazards, to assess the risk and to identify and document all actions that should be taken.
