WHAT IS COSHH?
COSHH stands for the Control of Substance Hazardous to Health and there are a series of regulations implemented to that effect.
They are designed to ensure employers know everything they need to know to protect employees and the general public from the risks of working with hazardous substances.
There are eight steps employers must follow to adhere to COSHH:
- Assess the risks;
- Decide what precautions are required;
- Prevent or adequately control exposures;
- Ensure controls are used;
- Monitor the exposure levels;
- Carry out appropriate health surveillance;
- Write a plan for accidents and emergencies;
- Inform, train and supervise employees.
