Up until now, you could only define a product as a ‘solid’, ‘liquid’ or ‘gas’. In Stoffenmanager® Version 8.2, you can now also select abrasive activities with wood, stone, metal, plastic, glass, composite etc. and processes that release emissions, such as welding, soldering, cutting, and diesel engine emissions.
You cannot perform a risk assessment for this, but the new product characteristics allow you to have a complete product database. Moreover, you can set up Workplace Instruction Cards (WICs) for these new product characteristics.
Of course, this is just the first step. In the future, you’ll be able to link these product characteristics to your measurement data and new exposure models that we will develop for you in the near future.
