Chemical Inventory

Published by Safety Net Team

August 30, 2021

An inventory of all the chemicals you use within your business will assist you to fulfil your duties under several regulations, including the Control Of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 2002 (COSHH) and The Health and Safety (Safety Signs and Signals) Regulations 1996.

Having conducted a chemical inventory, you will then be able to decide whether you must replace certain chemicals with those less hazardous or, simply, reduce the usage of hazardous chemicals as much as possible before adopting a last resort of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).
