||For enterprises using a large number of chemicals, French regulations concerning the prevention of hazards include provisions concerning the responsibilities of suppliers as well as users of chemicals. For users, preventive measures should be the result of a hazard evaluation at the place of work involving the detection, identification, quantification and evaluation based on reference systems such as that of occupational exposure limit values. Regulations also address the question of the order in which preventive measures should be implemented: training, information, substitution, collective prevention measures (collection and ventilation) and personal preventive measures. In order to be fully effective, the control of chemical hazards within the enterprise requires a combination of preventive measures to be implemented with the active support of all involved.
