Reducing exposures to hazardous substances

Uncontrolled exposure to hazardous substances can result in workers suffering from long term lung diseases such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and lung cancer, as well as skin conditions including non-melanoma skin cancers and dermatitis.

Organisations are required by law to control these risks through compliance with the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) Regulations 2002 (as amended). These comprise of the following key regulations:

  • Regulation 6 - COSHH risk assessment
  • Regulation 7 - Control of exposure
  • Regulation 8 - Use of control measures
  • Regulation 9 - Maintenance, examination and testing of control measures
  • Regulation 10 - Monitoring of exposure
  • Regulation 11 - Health surveillance
  • Regulation 12 - Information, instruction and training
  • Regulation 13 - Arrangements to deal with accidents, incidents and emergencies

Exova has a qualified team of occupational hygienists who specialise in a range of consultancy services which can provide full compliance through our COSHH Managed Service.

Our occupational hygienists work throughout the UK and Ireland and can assist you during the whole COSHH managed process or just in the areas that you require specialist assistance.

Please view our additional pages on specific COSHH monitoring and testing Services:

  • Operator exposure monitoring
  • Local exhaust ventilation examination and testing
