Chemical safety at CERN begins with avoiding chemical products whenever possible. If that is not an option, the least hazardous chemical product should be selected. Wherever chemical products are used, appropriate prevention measures should be observed. In addition to these measures, CERN provides training courses and has put in place procedures regarding chemical safety.
CERN experts are available to support you in identifying and evaluating chemical products and to provide advice on their appropriate usage (e.g. handling and storage) and alternative products. For further questions, please contact Env-Prevention@cern.ch.
