Many substances can be harmful to health, including metalworking fluid, dust and fume-laden air, paint, ink, glue, lubricant and detergent amongst others. There are particular risks from hazardous substances such as isocyanates and other respiratory sensitisers.
A COSHH assessment will help you to manage the risks associated with using hazardous materials. The Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 2002 (COSHH) require that the health risks arising from exposure to substances hazardous to health are avoided where this is reasonably practicable or that they are controlled where it is not reasonably practicable to avoid them.
There are more work related deaths each year from the Health part of H&S than from the Safety element. Deaths from work related cancer far exceed all safety related workplace deaths each year (from work at height, injuries from vehicles, etc.).
A Control of Substances Hazardous to Health risk assessment (or COSHH Assessment) concentrates on the hazards and risks from substances that are stored, used or generated in your workplace. The hazards and risks are not just associated with bottles marked “Hazardous”. There are a large number of substances that can be hazardous to health and can induce debilitating diseases, including asthma, cancer and skin diseases.
