The Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) regulations came into force back in 2002. Part of the regulations require employers to assess the potential risks to any and all of their employees who work with harmful substances.
But it’s not simply an exercise you have to complete on paper to prove something to enforcing authorities. As an employer, you must establish ways to prevent or control those risks to your employees.
And, if you have more than five employees, you’re legally obliged to keep a written record of these risk assessments.
If the idea of completing a COSHH assessment is new to you – or if it fills you with dread – don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.
We’ve put together this guide to take you through, step-by-step-, exactly what you need to do to successfully complete a COSHH risk assessment.
We’ve stripped the process back to five simple steps. We start by helping you identify hazardous substances in the first place, moving on to identifying who is at risk and how to successfully put protective measures in place.
