What Does CoSHH Mean?

The UK Government website states that "COSHH is the law that requires employers to control substances that are hazardous to health and includes nanomaterials."

There are several steps that an employer can take that ensure they are full CoSHH compliant. The oragnisation should;

  1. Identify any materials that are potentially hazardous to health.
  2. Create risk assessments to decide how harm to health can be prevented.
  3. Provide equipment and measures that actively reduce harm to health.
  4. Ensure and enforce the use of these measures.
  5. Keep all of the equipment and measures in good working order.
  6. Provide ample training and instruction for all employees & others.
  7. Monitor the health of their employees, if appropriate.
  8. Plan for emergencies.

Some businesses actively manufacture or produce harmful nanosubstances as part of their core business processes. However, for most businesses and organisations CoSHH regulations will apply to the seemingly benign substances they keep on the premises.

CoSHH Cabinets make up a key part of an organisations strategy to control hazardous substances. They help to isolate the substances in an area where people are aware there is a potential risk to their health. 

This provides a visual and physical cue to the operator for them to refer to the risk assessment.

For futher information on CoSHH regualtions, you can visit the Government HSE webiste below.

What is DSEAR Compliance?

DSEAR stands for the Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations (2002) which form the primary legislation that apply to the control of any substance that could cause a fire or explosion. The legislation applies to any workplace or commercial premises where such substances are present, used or produced.

Our CoSHH Cabinets can assist with DSEAR compliance by collecting and containing dangerous substances, controlling the quantities of dangerours substances stored in an area and eliminating the risk of incompatible substances coming into contact with each other.

GHS and CLP Labelling Systems Explained

GHS and CLP regulations were formed to provide legislation to organisations to ensure hazardous substances and materials are labelled correctly.

Prior to the Global Summit held in Johannesburg in 2002, there was inconsistency around the world on how hazardous materials were identified and what materials were considered to be hazardous. Therefore the UN created the Globally Harmonised System for the identification and labelling of hazardous materials.

The GHS regulations were only developed as an international agreement and do not form a legal treaty, therefore countires or trading blocs have adopted the guidelines to create their own legal legislation.

The EU and the UK adopted the GHS guidelines by creating the CLP Regulation. The CLP Regulation came into force in the UK on 20th January 2010. The regulations show exact prictograms that should be used for different materials depending on the effects that they have to either people or the environment. 

These labels replaced CHIP regulations in 2015 and must be adhered to strictly. All of our Hazardous Cabinets are supplied with the full range of CLP labels meaning you can enforce and ensure compliance on site.

A full list of labels and their corresponding pictograms can be found on the governments HSE website here
