EU-OSHA’s website offers access to more than a hundred publications on dangerous substances, ranging from factsheets on basic topics to comprehensive reports (e.g. on reprotoxic substances and carcinogens) and encyclopaedic OSHwiki articles, which can be found in the section ‘Dangerous substances’.

During the Healthy Workplaces Campaign 2018-19 on dangerous substances many of these publications are being updated and amended, and new publications and new formats are being added.

Campaign infosheets inform the user about basic and priority actions for managing dangerous substances. Infographics are used to bring the most important facts and figures to life. Updated and new OSHwiki articles enlarge and improve the coverage provided by the OSHwiki section on dangerous substances.
