Good to know
Regulations require managers to reduce if not eliminate worker exposure to hazardous substances in the facility. To do this, employers should assess and be aware of the dangers which are associated with the substances used and/or manufactured in a workplace. Such procedures can be completed in-house, though establishments are permitted to seek assistance from other professionals.
The relevant standards are detailed in and based on the Health and Safety at Work Act (HSWA), as well as the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations (MHSWR). They set out the basic requirements for you to follow to ensure that you have a safe working environment.
Other laws that employers need to be aware of, regarding workplace safety and the use of respiratory protective equipment (RPE) are the following:
Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations (COSHH);
Control of Lead at Work Regulations (CLAW)
Control of Asbestos at Work Regulations (CAW)
Confined Spaces Regulations (CSR)
Ionising Radiations Regulations (IRR)
The use of RPE such as protective masks and other safety devices are implemented in these regulations, and employers will do well keep informed of relevant applications, as well as updates and changes.
These regulations, supported by Approved Codes of Practice (ACOPs), should give the proper focus and attention when implementing workplace safety.
