Regulation 9 of the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 2002 (COSHH) states that all engineering control measures provided by an employer should be maintained in an efficient state, be in efficient working order, in good repair and in a clean condition. It further states that employers must ensure that thorough examination and tests of these control systems are carried out every 14 months, or more frequently for certain processes and substances. Suitable records of examination and tests are kept for 5 years.

The survey will cover normal process operations within the manufacturing site. Testing will be carried out in line with guidance from The Health and Safety Executive document HSG258 – Controlling airborne contaminants at work.
