Easy Steps to Control Health Risks From Chemicals – Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH)

HSE_LogoDid you know the Health & Safety Executives website provides practical advice and Guidance on the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations? You can find information on what the law requires, advice on completing COSHH assessments and a handy e-tool to help you carry out assessments.

COSHH Essentials provides advice on controlling the use of chemicals for a range of common tasks and sets out basic advice on what to do to control exposure to hazardous substances in the workplace. It takes the form of straightforward advice in ‘factsheets’ called ‘control guidance sheets’. There are two types of sheets, industry-specific ‘direct advice sheets’ and ‘generic control guidance sheets’.
