The COSHH Regulations impose duties on businesses to protect staff against health risks that may arise from work activities that expose them to hazardous substances.
One such duty is the requirement to carry out COSHH Risk Assessments before using any substance. A COSHH Risk Assessment will:
- Identify the hazards and assess the risks to health arising from the use of hazardous substances during a work activity
- Decide what control measures are required to prevent or control exposure
Aegis has staff qualified to undertake COSHH Assessments on behalf of clients and can advise you and your staff on protecting colleagues from hazardous substances.
Additionally, our work can help you put the right systems and procedures in place to ensure people are protected for the long term.
