HSE launches COSHH Essentials e-tool
08 June 2015
The UK Health & Safety Executive has reorganised online access to Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSSH) information. COSHH Essentials sets out basic advice on what to do to control exposure to hazardous substances in the workplace. It takes the form of straightforward advice in factsheets called ‘control guidance sheets’.
There are two types of sheets, industry-specific ‘direct advice sheets’ and ‘generic control guidance sheets’.
First check the direct advice sheets listed by industry to see if there are any direct advice sheets for tasks or processes in your industry. If your industry is not listed, you can use the e-tool to identify which generic control guidance sheets are appropriate.
When using the COSHH e-tool you will be prompted by questions to enter some basic information about the substance you are using, before being directed to the most appropriate generic control guidance sheet for you.
