Protecting the health and safety of your workforce and staying on top of records and reporting accidents will help you to manage risks and prevent future injuries, accidents and incidents of ill-health. Employers who fail to comply with RIDDOR can face fines and a possible custodial sentence in the most serious of cases.

1. Assess a situation rather than a substance
Multiple assessments must be made for different workplace exposure scenarios.

2. Caution in grouping COSHH risk assessments
For example, various paints will contain widely different chemicals, which means that their hazards vary.

3. Safety Data Sheet and COSHH risk assessments are different
An SDS sheet contains important information about the substance; however, it does not outline how to safely control its use. A COSHH risk assessment is a legal document.

4. Assess process emissions
 These substances can cause significant damage to the respiratory system and lungs; therefore, they must be managed correctly.

5. Have a formal health surveillance scheme in place
 
If your employees are exposed to hazardous substances daily, lung function testing, skin checks and biological monitoring should all be considered to measure their impact on your employee’s health. 

6. Complete employee training
If employees don't understand the risk, then they are more likely to harm themselves and those around them.

7. Have a COSHH risk assessment for all substances
Even if you think that you’re managing exposure to substances safely, be mindful of process generated substances that are often neglected.

8. Review your COSHH risk assessments
COSHH compliance is a cycle of continuous improvement; processes and procedures must be reviewed regularly.

9. Assess biological hazards
Don’t forget that any hazardous bacteria, fungus or virus should have a COSHH risk assessment.

10. Face fit testing
All Respiratory Protective Equipment (RPE) that is worn in work requires a face fit test. This will ensure that the mask is effectively sealed with the face. If a seal is not being made, the mask will not provide the required level of protection.

Risk Management

This year is all about digitising our data, moving away from spreadsheets and paper-based forms we still have, so that we can start to build risk profiles across our network. Utilising Info Exchange for more than just Accident & Incident Reporting, Supplier Assessments and Improvement Actions is key to that, along with pushing out the technology to our operational teams and contractors to use.

Managing Accident Reporting in the Workplace

Only by creating safer workplaces to improve the health, safety and wellbeing of employees can we help reduce these statistics in the future.
