COSHH is the law that requires employers to control substances that are hazardous to health. You can prevent or reduce workers exposure to hazardous substances by:
finding out what the health hazards are;
deciding how to prevent harm to health (risk assessment);
providing control measures to reduce harm to health;
making sure they are used ;
keeping all control measures in good working order;
providing information, instruction and training for employees and others;
providing monitoring and health surveillance in appropriate cases;
planning for emergencies.
Most businesses use substances, or products that are mixtures of substances. Some processes create substances. These could cause harm to employees, contractors and other people.
Regulation 9 of the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations (COSHH) and the guidance in HSG 258 states:
“The Maintenance, Examination and Testing of Local Exhaust Ventilation” states that LEV COSHH inspections must be carried out at least once in every 14 month period; more regular for some substances and processes."
