Why Toxic?

Hazardous substances can occur in almost all work situations. Toxic is useful when working safely with chemicals and hazardous substances.

What is Toxic?

Toxic is actually a digital overview of hazardous substances. A.Hak has its own database at Toxic, which contains our hazardous substances.

What can I do with Toxic?

Toxic can help you find safety information on a particular substance. This information can be used for;

  • How to handle the substance (think about handling and storage)
  • What PPE do I need to work or handle the substance safely?
  • What measures should be taken in the event of an incident
  • Information which can be provided to the emergency services in case of an incident.

Where can I find Toxic?

In the A.Hak safety app under this selector 'hazardous substances'. Important: The language is by default set to Dutch. This can be changed by changing the language in the top right corner of the screen to the country of your choice.
