What is a Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) Assessment?

A Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) assessment is a systematic process that organizations use to evaluate and manage the risks associated with the use, handling, storage, and disposal of hazardous substances in the workplace. The COSHH assessment is a fundamental component of occupational health and safety regulations in many countries and is essential for protecting the health and well-being of employees.

At Secure Safety Solutions, our Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) assessment services are designed to assist organizations in identifying, evaluating, and managing the risks associated with hazardous substances in the workplace.

Here's an overview of what our comprehensive COSHH assessment service includes

Substance Identification: We work with your organization to compile a comprehensive list of hazardous substances used or produced in your workplace. This includes chemicals, solvents, dust, fumes, gases, and biological agents.

Risk Assessment: Our experts assess the potential risks and health hazards associated with each hazardous substance. We consider various factors, such as exposure levels, duration of exposure, and the route of exposure (inhalation, skin contact, ingestion).

Exposure Control Measures: We provide recommendations and guidance on implementing effective control measures to minimize or eliminate risks. This may include engineering controls, administrative controls, personal protective equipment (PPE), and safe work practices.

Emergency Procedures: We help develop and refine emergency procedures for dealing with accidental exposures or spills of hazardous substances to minimize harm to employees and the environment.

Training and Education: We offer training and education programs to ensure that employees are aware of the hazards, understand the control measures, and know how to use PPE properly.

Documentation and Record Keeping: We assist in maintaining accurate records of hazardous substances, risk assessments, control measures, and employee training to demonstrate compliance with COSHH regulations.

Compliance Verification: We help ensure that your organization complies with relevant COSHH regulations and standards, reducing the risk of non-compliance issues.
