The storage of hazardous substances is crucially important. With the implementation of the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (CoSHH) regulations in 2002, employers have a duty of care to ensure these substances are properly stored. QMP’s wide range of chemical storage solutions is ideal to ensure the safety of workplace employees.

Hazardous substances

How do the regulations protect
employees in the workplace?

The regulations protect employees and other persons from hazardous substances used in workspaces. This is done 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.
