A COSHH risk assessment focuses assessing the risks from hazardous substances in the workplace. All routes of exposure must be considered which may include inhalation, ingestion, absorption, and injection. All employers need to ensure the exposure of their staff to hazardous substances is prevented or adequately reduced to as low as practicable.
How we can help
Our team support you in undertaking COSHH risk assessments to evaluate the hazards in your workplace and decide how we can eliminate the cause altogether, substitute the substance to something less potentially. Additionally, this could include exploring safer alternatives to hazardous substances or changing certain work processes to reduce risk to as low as possible.
- Review and update of Safety Data Sheet relevant to the substances for each work activity
- Development of safe work method statements
- Information on employee concerns and feedback concerning personal exposure monitoring
