COSHH Assessment (Control of Substances Hazardous to Health) can become a large task for businesses which use a variety of different substances.
COSHH assessments need reviewing on a regular basis, the products you use could be replaced and consequently, a new COSHH Assessment may need writing.
You might have a large collection of Manufacturer’s Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) but this is not a COSHH assessment.
A COSHH Assessment is a Risk Assessment written specifically for a substance used or created during a specific task.
The assessment takes into account:
- How hazardous the substance is
- The intended use
- Chemical properties
- Amounts used
This information will enable an assessment to be produced, appropriate to the process you are carrying out.
