Under the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations (COSHH, 2002) employers are required to either prevent, reduce or at the very least, control exposure to hazardous substances in order to prevent ill health to their workers. COSHH training will enable those responsible, to write their own risk assessment and will help employees understand the importance of control measures which may be put in place.
Comply with the Control of Hazardous Substances
In any workplace, there may be substances used in production which could cause long or short term sickness or injury. The COSHH Regulations 2002 require each company to analyse those potentially hazardous substances in use. However, not all substances are obvioussly hazardous, for example, bar tenders who frequently slice lemon or limes may develop dermititis, or cleaners can be effected by strong cleaning chemicals.
