Employers must risk assess all hazards where there is potential of individuals for exposure to substances that might be hazardous to health. These include substances that may be used, handled or stored in the workplace, as well as identifying any processes that emit dust, fume, vapour, mist or gas; and skin contact with liquids, pastes and dusts.

Safety Data Sheets must be available for all substances on the premises and COSHH assessments are carried out for all tasks that use these substances. Compliance with COSHH also requires suitable and sufficient storage of substances. COSHH Awareness Training is available to clients to ensure they are compliant with COSHH.
