Hazardous Cupboards

Blog introduction - Control of Hazardous Substances

The storage of hazardous substances is crucially important within the workplace. Nobody wants to injure themselves at work now do they? Therefore, employers have a duty of care to ensure hazardous substances are properly stored. And that’s not just us at QMP saying this, with the implementation of the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (CoSHH) regulations in 2002. These regulations protect employees and other persons from hazardous substances used in workspaces via risk assessment, control of exposure, health surveillance as well as incident planning. There are also duties on employees to take care of their own exposure to hazardous substances.

Hazardous Substance Cupboards will ensure the safe and secure storage of hazardous substances in work environments. Moreover, it is vital that employers comply with the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (CoSHH) regulations within all working environments. This is as it is the law, but it is also safeguarding employees. Our Hazardous Substance Cupboards have a variety of features, ensuring stored substances will be secure in any workspace. In addition, our Cupboards are a distinctive bright yellow to ensure employees know where and what are stored inside these cabinets. Our Cupboards bright, distinctive colours are warning employees that these units are not to be tampered with.

We offer additional accessories to ensure our Hazardous Cupboards can easily fit into a workspace. For example, we offer mobile versions of this unit so that it can be transported around the workplace. Additionally, we offer stands so that Hazardous Substance Cupboards are elevated off the ground. These come with adjustable footing for uneven surfaces.
