The GDA Joint German OSH Strategy institutions - the German government, the federal states and the German social accident insurance institutions - launched the 3rd GDA period in mid-2021.
Three key areas with work programmes were prepared for the next five years.
The GDA Hazardous Substance Check has been developed by the German Social Accident Insurance Institutions and is provided as part of the work programme Safe Handling of Carcinogenic Substances, set up under the Joint German Occupational Health and Safety Strategy (German: Gemeinsame Deutsche Arbeitsschutzstrategie, short ‘GDA’).
The GDA Hazardous Substances Check can be used to identify hazards from carcinogenic hazardous substances at the workplace and to take effective protective measures. With this new tool, small and medium-sized enterprises, in particular, are provided with support when starting a risk assessment process.
