‘Do it yourself’ (DIY) products project- chemical substances

 

A recent Danish Environmental Protection Agency project checked the safety of some products used in ‘do it yourself’ (DIY) works. The project examined products commonly used in DIY renovation projects in the home and looked at whether they pose health risks due to exposure to hazardous substances.

 

After initial screening, the project team chose to examine the risks of nine products in more detail (paints, waxes, chemical wood products, joint foam, white spirit). Eight of the nine products tested were shown to pose some risks to human health if used without appropriate safety equipment such as protective gloves or respiratory masks during application.

 

Many of the observed concerns were related to products which can release volatile compounds.
