The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has put together many management guidance documents, under the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) Regulations 2002 to help business owners and duty-holders provide safe workplaces and safe working processes.

 

COSHH Essential Guidance

In the guidance documents, there is specific control guidance for most kinds of working processes. Most include engineering controls, such as local exhaust ventilation (LEV) systems.

HSE provides general guidance on how to control exposures for specific industries and processes. They also provide guidance on controlling exposure through the likes of PPE (personal protective equipment), RPE (Respiratory Protective Equipment) and engineering control solutions, such as LEV.

LEV Systems can help to prevent and reduce exposure from dust, fumes, vapours, gases and mists, which can be generated from various kinds of industrial processes. Exposure to pollutants in the workplace can cause long-term illnesses and work-related deaths. We have assembled a comprehensive list of useful documents which may be beneficial to you, your business and your working processes.
