COSHH basics

The regulations are designed to protect employees and other individuals from potential health risks associated with substances used in the workplace.

The COSHH regulations cover the use, storage, handling and disposal of hazardous substances that can create risks for human health. It is important for employers to understand and be compliant with the regulations to ensure their employees’ safety in the workplace.
