What is a COSHH assessment?
A COSHH risk assessment is required under the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations and should identify the hazards and risks of hazardous substances in a workplace and set out suitable control measures.
You can find hazardous substances in most workplaces, from simple cleaning products to complex chemicals. COSHH risk assessments are also required for the hazardous substances you create as by-products, such as dust and fumes.
COSHH Assessments that are suitable and sufficient.
It is not deemed sufficient to have generic assessments and just add a location, so we have designed our intuitive software to enable you to generate a COSHH assessment that not only considers the substance but addresses the circumstances and processes during which they occur or are used.
How does it work?
Based on the mechanics of the HSE’s substance evaluation tool, our system enables users to allocate suitable control measures according to the latest hazard information and communicate them clearly and concisely.
The recommended control approaches and measures, based on your selected hazard phrases, quantities used and material form are fully editable and enable you to make your assessment both site and process-specific.
