COSHH Risk Assessments
With the introduction of the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations (COSHH), employers have a duty to assess the risk of exposure to chemicals and other hazardous substances to safeguard the health, safety and welfare of their employees.
Hazardous substances can be found in nearly all work environments and can produce immediate health effects as well as debilitating longer term conditions.
The COSHH regulations require a systematic approach to be adopted where hazards are identified and necessary precautions determined to prevent or minimise exposure. A comprehensive COSHH assessment is the starting point in any exposure control management programme. Benefits of the assessment often include a reduction in occupational disease, improved working environments and reduced operational costs resulting from careful substance selection.
