Chemical Health Risk Assessment (CHRA)
The Chemical Health Risk Assessment (CHRA) is an assessment that has to be conducted arising from the use, handling, storage, transport, removal, disposal of treatment of chemicals hazardous to health in their workplace as required by the Occupational Safety and Health (Use and Standard of Exposure of Chemicals Hazardous to Health) Regulation 2000.

In April 2000, Department of Occupational Safety and Health has enacted the OSH (Use and Standard of Exposure of Chemical Hazardous to Health) Regulation which require the employer to perform an assessment of health risks arising from the use of chemical hazardous to health at workplace.

CHRA is conducted with the purpose of enabling decisions to be made on appropriate control measures, induction and training of employees, monitoring and health surveillance activities as may be required to protect the health of employees who may be exposed to chemicals hazardous to health at work.

Our DOSH registered assessors shall identify the hazards posed by each of the chemical used and evaluate the degree of exposure of the employee. Recommendation shall be provided to further improve the existing control measures to prevent or reduce the risk.
