The exposure of workers to chemical substances is affected by the ability and willingness of companies to implement occupational safety rules. In developing the risk characterisation of particular substances, account must be taken of the variability of compliance levels within the industry. The aim should be to create a common basis for the risk assessment of existing and new substances at EU level.

This is one of seven papers presented at the workshop, which was organised by the European Chemicals Bureau, a part of the Environment Institute of the European Commission's Joint Research Centre in Ispra, Italy.
