COSHH - The Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations
Duel Health and Safety Consultants will prepare on your behalf the COSHH assessments needed to ensure compliance. COSHH assessments can typically be undertaken remotely on behalf of our clients removing the need to visit your premises or site.
We’ll undertake the assessments using our pro-forma document which is compliant with the regulations. It provides unambiguous information that is easily understood and clearly states the precautions and control measures to be implemented and followed by your employees.
In our experience, matrix systems for measuring risk are unnecessarily complicated and confusing to both employees and the individuals who have to undertake the assessments. Therefore we record the level of risk as either Low, Medium or High. This is more than suitable for the vast majority of our clients’ employees and is easily understood by all.
Substances hazardous to health can occur in many forms e.g. solids, liquids, vapours, gases, dusts, fibres, fumes, mists, smoke, biological agents with the potential to cause harm if they are inhaled, ingested, absorbed through or come into contact with the skin. Employers have a legal duty to undertake an assessment of substances hazardous to health and we can advise you on the tasks and processes that require assessing.
