Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Policy
We have now comprehensively reviewed and improved our Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) Policy, as part of the revamp of the COSHH documents folder. The COSHH Policy can now be used to clearly set out how you as a company will deal with the use of any hazardous materials that you use at work that may cause harm to your staff – or anyone else.
The new COSHH Policy has been written in sections that cover the different areas you need to address including COSHH assessments, controlling exposure to hazardous materials, when health surveillance will be needed, what training will be made available, PPE, as well as how materials will be stored and disposed of, and how to deal with an emergency situation should you have a leak or a spill.
