COSHH policy statement

Docklands Waste Recycling acknowledges that no substance can be considered completely safe. All reasonable steps will be taken to ensure that all exposure of employees to substances hazardous to health is prevented or at least controlled to within statutory limits.

The company undertakes to control exposure by engineering means where reasonably practicable. Where exposure cannot be adequately controlled by engineering means, appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) will be provided free of charge after consultation with employees or their representatives.

All employees will be provided with comprehensive information and instruction on the nature and likelihood of their exposure to substances hazardous to health.

The implementation of this policy requires the total co-operation of all members of management and staff.

Information and training

The company will give sufficient information and training to ensure full understanding of the hazards to health posed by substances in the workplace and the importance of the control measures provided. Information will also be given to others who may be affected, such as contractors, temporary staff and visitors.

Managers and supervisors of areas that use substances hazardous to health will be given additional training to ensure the proper management of the risks.

Controls

Modern working methods involve the use of substances, principally chemicals, which may pose a risk to the health of people using them. No chemical is completely safe in all circumstances and any airborne dust, in significant quantities, can damage health. Since the hazard to health posed by many substances is not known it is good practice to use working methods to minimise exposure. Where the hazards are known specific steps can be taken.

The most important steps are:

  • Identify the hazard.
  • Assess the risk.
  • Eliminate, prevent or control the risk.
  • Maintain and monitor the controls.
  • Monitor the health of the workforce.
  • Ensure assessments and controls are up to date.
