ANSES | Encourage the substitution of formaldehyde in several professional sectors
Recognized as a carcinogen at European level, formaldehyde, more commonly known as "formaldehyde", must be substituted by other substances or processes to protect the health of exposed professionals. ANSES conducted several expert appraisals to identify less dangerous alternatives in five professional sectors. It thus points out the levers and obstacles to substitution in different sectors. This work will make it possible to support the public authorities in the implementation of substitution obligations by employers. They will also be useful for those involved in the prevention of occupational health risks in order to support substitution actions.
