25 Mar What Are The Consequences Of Poor CoSHH?
Studies reveal that every year, thousands of employees are made ill due to exposure to hazardous substances. With the rising number of accidents and illness, CoSHH (The Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations) was introduced. This regulation provides a legal framework to protect people working with hazardous substances. It places a duty on employers to assess the risks of exposure to any substance hazardous to health and to ensure that the Health and Safety of employees is protected in the workplace.
Poorly Implemented CoSHH Can Get You Into Serious Trouble
Now if CoSHH is not properly managed then your employees may have to face dangerous effects of these hazardous substances, which on occasion results even in death. Improper assessments will result in lost productivity to your business; leave you liable to enforcement action including prosecution under the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations as well as result in civil claims from your employees. On the other hand, if you carefully follow the regulations and manage your CoSHH assessments well, it will improve workplace conditions for employees, reduce time lost through ill health and mitigate future exposure to litigation.
