What is COSHH?
The Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) regulations require organisations to effectively manage the use of substances that are hazardous to health. The vast majority of businesses will use at least some substances or products that could cause harm to employees, contractors and other people if they are exposed to them frequently or in dangerously high amounts.
Why is it important?
If your business uses or creates hazardous substances as part of your day-to-day processes, a robust COSHH management strategy is vital to safeguard your staff and comply with legislation.
Hazardous Substance management can be a complex task. Changing legislation, the introduction of new substances and a lack of specialist knowledge can result in staff suffering from work-related ill health and businesses facing significant fines, prosecution and irreparable reputational damage.
