Hazardous Materials In The Workplace

04 Oct 2016


** Note short time to respond to this request

Health & Safety Executive is starting a fundamental review of the suite of regulations governing the use of hazardous materials in the workplace (excluding asbestos).

The aim of the review is to:

  • simplify the regulatory framework - making it easier for duty holders to comply with their duties
  • promote proportional risk management
  • maintain a high level of H&S protection

The review will cover the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations (COSHH), the Control of Lead at work Regulations (CLAW) and the Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations (DSEAR).

If you work with hazardous substances or advise people who do, HSE would like to hear about your experiences via this survey before it closes on Tuesday 18th October.
