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.
