Using hazardous substances in the workplace can put people’s health at risk. The Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) Regulations was created to protect workers’ health and covers the majority of chemical and biological agents encountered in the workplace.
The HSE estimate that in the UK 2.1 million people were suffering from work related illness and 34 million working days are lost as a result. Furthermore, 1028 were prosecuted by the HSE and 354 were prosecuted by the local authorities.
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.
