Safety by design

The concept of safe-by-design aims to prevent negative impacts on human health and the environment, by considering safety aspects early in the design process of chemicals, materials and products.

The primary purpose of safe-by-design is to minimise toxicity yet there are also many other beneficial effects.

Safety-by-Design has significant impact on the following specific areas:

  • Human health: avoiding illness and associated reduced quality of life, loss of productivity and health care costs and premature mortality.
  • Ecosystems: reduced exposure due to contamination of water, air and soil, and improvement of the value of ecosystem services, preservation of ecosystems.
  • Circular economy: safe-by-design enables easier reuse, repair and recycling of materials by using substances that are compatible with new lifecycles.
  • Avoidance of future costs for business: avoidance of regrettable substitution, which will limit costs to comply with (future) legislation and productivity loss at the workplace.
  • Boosting innovation and competitive advantages, related to the value of sustainability aspects for consumers and investors.
