If your business uses or creates hazardous substances as part of your day to day processes, a robust COSHH (Control of substances hazardous to health) management strategy is vital to safeguard your staff and comply with legislation.

This can be a complex task. Changing legislation, the introduction of new substances and the risk of human error means that you need a simple and structured way of protecting your staff and your business.

The ‘COSHH cycle’ consists of three stages – management and assessment, training and monitoring and maintenance – and is the basis from which all companies are expected to demonstrate their compliance with legislation. However, implementing a robust strategy to effectively meet all regulatory requirements can create significant challenges for organisations:

  • A lack of COSHH expertise – As a niche and highly complex part of health and safety, most businesses do not have access to a specialist chemist or occupational hygienist that can decipher product information, apply it to legislation and write fully compliant COSHH assessments.

  • Time taken to write COSHH assessments – On average, it takes a health and safety professional around 45 minutes to write a fully compliant COSHH assessment.  With many organisations requiring hundreds, if not thousands, of assessments, this can place a huge burden on any health and safety team.

  • Keeping your COSHH assessments up to date – Changing regulation, product ingredients and internal processes mean that is very difficult for organisations to ensure that every COSHH assessment they are using remains fully compliant.
