Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) Risk Assessment

Results of the chemical assessments carried out on the particulates, gases, vapours and other contaminants are compared to their respective occupational exposure limits (OELs) to help make professional judgement with the acceptability of the exposures to worker. However, many other contaminants do not have these OELs and that COSHH risk assessment helps in accessing these chemicals and to match them to the expected controls in handling these chemicals so that exposures to worker are minimized.
