The GreenScreen™ for Safer Chemicals is a comparative chemical hazard screening method developed by Clean Production Action to help move our society quickly and effectively toward the use of greener and safer chemicals. The GreenScreen™ is used by organizations including Washington State Department of Ecology and Hewlett-Packard to evaluate the hazards associated with specific chemicals and identify safer alternatives. These in-depth experiential workshops are intended to educate designers and decision-makers on how to implement the GreenScreen™ to compare and select safer chemicals for use in products and manufacturing processes.
The GreenScreen workshops are intended for both those who perform chemical assessments and decision-makers who utilize chemical assessments to inform their decisions, i.e., design, material selection, purchasing, prioritization for replacement decisions, etc. The training is relevant for businesses at all levels in the supply chain that face increasing market and regulatory pressures to design, purchase, and sell products made with the least hazardous materials available. The training will be of particular interest to business professionals in the following areas:
- supply chain management
- materials selection
- product and process design
- environmental health and safety
- regulatory affairs
