CoSHH Regulations in the workplace

Posted on October 22nd 2020 by Rebecca Brophy - Marketing & Business Development Co-ordinator.

You are required by the CoSHH Regulations when in the workplace to follow certain methods of storing hazardous substance materials. But, what does it stand for and how can we comply with those regulations?

What does ‘CoSHH’ mean?

So, this stands for ”Control of Substances Hazardous to Health”. In simple terms, these regulations have been put into place to prevent or reduce the exposure of hazardous substances to the worker. Read this article for a full in-depth explanation.

How can you comply in the workplace?

With a clearly marked Cupboard with a warning label. Our Hazardous Cupboards, CoSHH and Acid or Alkali Cupboards are perfect for the safe storage of those substances. With this range of cupboards, we offer a wide range of sizes to fit the needs of many workplaces – a little added bonus… the Yellow Hazardous Cupboards are on a fast ship 5 day lead time!

What type of materials are normally stored in a Hazardous Cupboard?

There are a number of items that can be stored within the cupboard – just a few to mention; Hand Sanitizer – a highly used product, considering the times we are living in (the ultimate bulk buy purchase), bleaches or cleaning solutions, again a common one. And other items where hazardous warning symbols are found on the packaging.
