International Chemical Control Toolkit (ICCT)
Submitted by ILO and WHO
The ICCT is a toolkit that enables workplaces to choose less hazardous chemicals. It is aimed particularly at developing countries. The toolkit employs the label information (GHS phrases) and local exposure information to select the appropriate workplace controls. Comparison of controls for different options enables the workplace to choose chemicals that need less exposure control, thereby substituting with less hazardous substances.
