Control of substances hazardous to healthCOSHH

The (COSHH), Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 2002 are designed to protect people against risks to their health arising from exposure to hazardous substances during their working activities. These regulations also detail what an employer must do in order to keep his staff safe.

Principally they are:

  • Assess the risk to health arising from exposure to hazardous substances at work and identify appropriate precautions.
  • Introduce appropriate measures to prevent or control the risks.
  • Ensure that control measures are used, equipment is properly maintained and procedures are followed.
  • Where necessary, monitor the exposure of workers and carry out health surveillance.
  • Inform and train employees with regard to the risks and the precautions to be taken.
