COSHH Assessments

Under Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) regulations, employers are legally responsible for the prevention, control and ongoing management of their employees’ exposure to hazardous substances in the workplace.

COSHH assessments

There are likely to be hazards in every workplace, ranging from cleaning products and solvents to exhaust fumes and dust. Failure to take the right steps to find out about such risks could result in cautions, improvement notices, fines and even your approval to operate being withdrawn from the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) or your local authority. 

A COSHH risk assessment will include identifying:

  • Hazardous substances in the workplace
  • Possible effects of these substances
  • Who is likely to be exposed and how
  • Your current measures to control the risks
  • Other measures needed to protect people
  • First aid requirements
