  • All companies must assess the potential risks to personnel.
  • No work should commence without COSHH and risk assessments (or equivalent globally)
  • COSHH and risk assessments must be conducted by competent personnel.

Note: COSHH is specific to certain countries only. Other forms of material assessments are conducted elsewhere.
