Under the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) Regulations 2002, employers need to either prevent or reduce their workers’ exposure to substances that are hazardous to their health. It is an employer’s duty to protect the health, safety and welfare of their employees and other people who might be affected by their business. Employers must do whatever is reasonably practicable to achieve this.
Employers need to consider the different forms of hazardous substances, how they might enter the body and the effects of exposure. We will help your staff to better understand Safety Data Sheets and other labelling and packaging advice, to protect employees.
