Scope of services Hazard assessment

Hazard assessment according to the German Ordinance on Industrial Safety and Health (BetrSichV) and German Ordinance on Hazardous Substances (GefStoffV) – occupational safety and health

Hazard assessment for occupational safety and health – Modern occupational safety and health aims to prevent health hazards and enhance workplace well-being. Employers assume responsibility in this regard for their staff, as safety in the workplace is considered one of the major objectives to be followed in any company. Every staff member desires to return home well come evening.

Hazard assessment, which unlike conventional accident prevention, also considers operational concerns, is available as a modern tool in occupational safety and health.

The need to examine operational-specific concerns has been recognised by legislative bodies for some time now and hazard assessment consequently is taken into account in the German Occupational Safety and Health Act and in the German Ordinance on Industrial Safety and Health and Ordinance on Hazardous Substances. It is therefore obligatory for employers.

In Germany, the provision of operating equipment by employers and the use of operating equipment by employees is regulated by the German Ordinance on Industrial Safety and Health (BetrSichV) “Ordinance governing safety and health protection for the use of operating equipment”.

Interaction with hazardous substances in operational environments is regulated in parallel by the German Ordinance on Hazardous Substances (GefStoffV) “Ordinance on protection against hazardous substances. The two ordinances have been in force in amended form since 1 June 2015.
