COSHH - Control of Substances Hazardous to Health

COSHH controls are a legal requirement for each business and are necessary to persons working at the business and to the public, under the 1974 Health and Safety at Work act.

It is the responsibility of the business owner to ensure that all staff are adequately trained. To help you with this, there are many resources published by the Health and Safety Executive, which we have repeated below. You should work through and review these along with your team.
