Occupational chemical and biological safety covers the management of substances and materials, to which employees can be exposed at work. COWI provides consultancy services on how to eliminate and reduce exposure to hazardous substances and materials.

Working environment legislation covers a series of regulations on substances and materials at work. To many organisations, it is a challenge to generate an overview of the regulations and even more so to observe the regulations on a daily basis, including regulations relating to the substitution of hazardous substances and materials with less hazardous ones.

COWI has many years of experience in assisting companies in the management of chemicals.
