3M QUANTITATIVE PROCESS RISK SCREENING TOOL
MetadataShow full item record
The 3M Quantitative Process Risk Screening Tool (QPRS Tool) has been developed as a means of assisting 3M facilities globally in evaluating and managing the risks associated with processes that use or store hazardous materials under General Duty activities. The QPRS Tool allows review of potential on-site and off-site impacts to employees, the adjacent community and the environment. The Quantitative Process Risk Screening Tool is unique to 3M, but is based on hazard evaluation techniques which have been developed and used within industry and which are supported by AIChE and industry groups. The QPRS Tool is a simple eight-step process that uses commonly available chemical hazard information primarily from Material Safety Data Sheets as well as information on the engineering and administrative safeguards provided for the process.
