CoSHH risk assessments focus on the hazards and risks from hazardous substances in the workplace.Under CoSHH regulations employers are legally required to reduce any potential risks to employees health, and CoSHH risk assessments are used if hazardous substances are likely to be encounted.
The aim of a CoSHH risk assessment is to know what potentially hazardous substances are present and how employees could be exposed to them, and what the health effects of these substances could be. Its important to remember that not all potentally hazardous substances will be labelled as such, and can also be a by-product of other work.
These are the components of a CoSHH assessment:
- Identifying the hazardous substances
- Identifying the health risks, including who might be harmed and how
- Providing control measures
- Regular reviewing and monitoring to make sure the CoSHH assessment is kept up to date
According to the HSE, CoSHH assessments should be regularly reviewed to make sure they are up to date. The time between reviews will depend on what risks are identified, what work is taking place and the likelihood of changes.
For example, if the nature of the work changes significantly the CoSHH assessment should be reviewed immediately. If there is reason to suppose a CoSHH assessment is no longer valid it should be reviewed immediately.
The Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations requires organisations that use or create substances that may cause harm to their employees, to mitigate risk and conduct a COSHH assessment to fulfil their legal requirement.
COSHH sheets, officiallly known as chemical safety data sheets, should be kept in an easily accessible location so that organisations can provide information on chemical products that help users of those chemicals to make a risk assessment. They describe the hazards the chemical presents, and give information on handling, storage and emergency measures in case of accident.
COSHH assessment software helps organisations to manage and standardise their COSHH assessments across all locations, dramtically reducing time spent on related paperwork and in turn, helping to mitigate risk. Engage EHS's COSSH assessment module can help you with with any of your COSSH related challenges.
The current COSHH regulations requires companies of all sizes that use or create substances that may cause harm to their employees, to carry out a COSHH assessment to fulfil their legal requirement.
