COSHH Assessments

“I would like to thank you very much for delivering a very good training course for my staff on Health & Safety. It was very relevant to our industry and explained in a way that everybody understood.”

Amanda Eyre, Director - A&H Associates Ltd, Essex.

What’s involved in the COSHH Assessment process?

There are number of steps involved in the COSHH Assessment process:

  • Step 1 - Assess the risks
  • Step 2 - Decide what precautions are needed
  • Step 3 - Prevent or adequately control exposure
  • Step 4 - Ensure that control measures are used and maintained
  • Step 5 - Monitor the exposure
  • Step 6 - Carry out appropriate health surveillance
  • Step 7 - Prepare plans and procedures to deal with accidents, incidents and emergencies
  • Step 8 - Ensure employees are properly informed, trained and supervised
 
Who else is covered by the assessment?

Although the eight steps only refer to “employees”, the regulations also cover anyone who works in the premises, for example, students, members of the public and contractors.

 

How do we help you and your business?

We work with your businesses to ensure your COSHH Assessments address the needs of both your employees and non-employee population, to the required standard, as laid out in the regulations.
