A contribution of occupational safety and health to "safe and sustainable by design"
With the Chemicals Strategy for Sustainability the European Union provides an important basis for the implementation of the United Nations Global Development Goals. A main focus is a safe and sustainable design of chemicals and materials. The German Federal Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (BAuA) contributes to this with its long-term strategic goal "Ensure safe-to-use chemicals and products". Although the focus of this discussion paper is on safe work, simultaneous consumer and environmental protection is strongly desired.
