COSHH Safe Chemical Handling

COSHH (Control of substances hazardous to health regulations)

COSHH regulations have been in place for more than 25 years and a breach of COSHH regulations by an employer or employee is a crime, punishable by an unlimited fine.

Remember, it isn’t just those handling the chemicals who need to know the risks – everyone on site must know how to identify chemical risks and work with control measures needed to minimise accidents. Knowing the first steps to take when things go wrong for yourself or others around you is critical to all.

It isn’t just the obvious businesses that have risks – factories, woodworking, and plastics factories – there are many more such as food prep, cleaners, and construction.  Do you even know the risks of what you have in your home or under your kitchen sink?

The best way to get a full understanding of what is and isn’t covered by COSHH is to undergo appropriate training.
