Who has to prepare operating instructions?
According to § 14 of the Hazardous Substances Ordinance, every entrepreneur is obliged to draw up operating instructions for every hazardous substance present in the company. Detailed instructions on the design of operating instructions can be found in TRGS 555. Operating instructions serve to protect employees who handle hazardous substances and mixtures at a workplace. These operating instructions must therefore be specifically tailored to all activities at each workplace, point out all hazards present there and indicate appropriate measures in the event of danger. For each individual substance!
Based on your safety data sheets, we can create substance-specific and editable operating instruction templates for you. These then only need to be adapted to the specific workplace.
Complete and workplace-related operating instructions with all important and prescribed supplements can be easily created with our software GemSy®, also in translated form in more than 30 languages for more than 30 countries.
Manufacturers of products who have their safety data sheets created by us can also easily provide their users with editable operating instruction templates online with our document management software SDB-Browser.
