    Hazardous Substances

    The Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 2002 (COSHH) is the law which is used to ensure employers control substances which can badly affect the health and safety of their workers. These substances can take a variety of forms (dust, liquids and gases or vapours and germs). The list of hazardous substances below is taken from the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) website,

    • Chemicals
    • Products containing chemicals
    • Fumes
    • Dusts
    • Vapours
    • Mists
    • Nanotechnology
    • Gases and asphyxiating gases and
    • Biological agents (germs). If the packaging has any hazard signs on it then it is classed as a hazardous substance.
    • Germs that cause diseases such as leptospirosis or legionnaires disease as well as germs used in laboratories.

    If you work with any hazardous substances, if your protective gear is not regularly checked then you could be working in a dangerous condition. There are preventative measures which can be taken to minimize the health risk to workers, and these include using control equipment such as ventilation and extraction systems and ensuring strict supervision and appropriate training.
