COSHH Risk Assessment

A COSHH (Control of Substances Hazardous to Health) risk assessment focuses on the hazards and risks arising from the use of substances within your workplace.

It’s important to note that a COSHH assessment doesn’t just include substances with ‘hazardous’ written on the label. Or those that are just part of your day-to-day work. It includes substances like dust – that might be created from your work activities; or even cleaning products used when the office is closed.

Your COSHH risk assessment should be tailored for your business. It will need to consider

  • Steps to reduce the risk of exposure
  • Restricting access to only essential employees
  • Researching potential lower-risk alternative substances
  • Cleaning and storage processes.
