We conduct your COSHH Assessments and advise on all aspects of health and safety relating to COSHH and any other dangerous substances, professionally, cost-effectively, and practically.
There are various regulations that cover dangerous substances in the workplace, including the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations (COSHH) and the Asbestos or Lead Regulations.
In providing a safe system of work and a safe place to work, all employers must conduct a risk assessment to ensure that any dangerous substances are used correctly and safely and that any workplace exposure limits (WELs) are not exceeded.
Remember that hazards and risks are not limited to substances labelled as 'hazardous'.
Steps to making a COSHH assessment:
Safety data sheets provide information on substances that are 'dangerous for supply'. Other substances should have instructions for safe use.
By law, your supplier must give you an up-to-date safety data sheet for a substance that is 'dangerous for supply'. Safety Data Sheets are often hard to understand, though this explanation might help.
Keeping a copy of the safety data sheet is not a COSHH assessment. If you're not sure, please get in touch with us.
Contact us with any questions. We will either call you or email you back as soon as we are available.
