CoSHH Risk Assessments

The Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (CoSHH)Regulations 2002 requires all employers to protect employees and other people from the hazardous substances present in the workplace.

Many professions (e.g. workshop technicians, cleaners, hairdressers, welders, garage workers, healthcare staff, bakers and stone masons) are regularly exposed to hazardous substances that cause serious health problems (e.g. cancer, dermatitis and asthma).

PAVY Ltd provide both CoSHH Risk Assessments and CoSHH Awareness Training.

Manual Handling

Over a third of all over-7-day injuries reported under RIDDOR (Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 1995) are caused by Manual Handling.

The Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992 require employers to avoid the need for hazardous manual handling, and assess and reduce the risk of injury where this is not practicable. Injuries occur in all work places - on farms and building sites, in factories, offices, warehouses, hospitals, banks, laboratories, and while making deliveries.

Warehouse Safety

The Management of Health & Safety at Work Regulations 1999 require employers to put in place the Health & Safety measures needed to manage the risks that arise in warehouses.

All mechanical handling equipment, storage facilities and racking must comply with the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER). Lifting equipment (e.g. fork lift trucks) needs to adhere to the Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998 (LOLER).
