COSHH Assessments focus on the hazards and risks in the workplace from hazardous substances. Whereas traditional assessments may only focus on items labelled as a hazard, the COSHH assessment will look at the workplace as a whole, for a more in-depth and thorough report, that then allows you to put appropriate measures in place.
Your COSHH Assessment must be written down by law if you have five or more employees. This report should include hazards, those who are at risk and also the precautions that have been put in place. COSHH Assessment Templates or Writing Services are available to help make this process easier and less time consuming for your business.
