We use chemicals every time we clean – toilet cleaner, glass cleaner, etc. – and these chemicals are covered under COSHH. COSHH stands for Control of Substances Hazardous to Health. COSHH identifies the hazard of a chemical and assesses its risk.
COSHH is everyone’s responsibility and COSHH Assessments are done for every chemical that we use. Copies of the COSHH Assessments are available for all CSG staff to access.
It is important that you can identify the different hazard symbols on the bottles. Always check the bottle of new chemicals and remember to use PPE if needed.
