There is a legal requirement for organisations to carry out specific COSHH Risk Assessments of activities that involve the use of hazardous substances and chemicals.

What can we do to help?

Our fully trained and experienced specialists can undertake your COSHH Risk Assessments and provide you with CoSHH Awareness Training.

Hazardous substances include:

  • Processes that emit dust, fume, vapour, mist or gas
  • Toxic liquids and pastes
  • Paint, inks, glues, lubricants and detergents
  • Any substances with workplace exposure limits (WELs) are hazardous to health.

Each COSHH risk assessment will be completed by one of our specialists and will consider:

  • The hazards presented by the substance or chemical and process;
  • The MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet) provided by the supplier/manufacturer;
  • The likely route of exposure (e.g. breathed in, swallowed, injected etc.);
  • The duration of exposure;
  • The severity of any likely ill-health effects, and any required first aid treatment;
  • The methods of disposing of the substance;
  • Storage methods and any special fire fighting requirements.

Following the assessment, a COSHH risk assessment document will be produced detailing the hazards, overall risk factor and control measures required.

We can also provide an ongoing COSHH management service which can include reviewing and updating your existing COSH risk assessments and assessing additional chemicals and substances
