When it comes to the Control of Substances Harmful to Health (COSHH), the cleaning sector is a prime target. Chemical use day-in and day-out means that employees are going to be exposed to potentially harmful substances during the course of their day.
That means, as an employer, you need to be able to identify potential risks to your employees when using potentially harmful substances. Then you must put in place adequate provisions to either prevent or control those risks.
As a legal obligation, it’s key that you’re able to carry out these assessments, and if you have five or more employees you have to keep a written record of them too.
