Column Model

Developed by the Institute for Occupational Safety (BGIA) of the German Federation of Institutions for Statutory Accident Insurance Prevention, this method presents data on chemical hazards in a tabular format. Using European Risk phrases (R-phrases), the criteria for each cell in the table are determined primarily by risk factors. The Column Model creates a framework for presenting data by hazard category and potential risk level. The columns are six hazard endpoints: acute health risk, chronic health risk, environmental risk, fire and explosion, liberation properties, and risks by technology.
