Access the resource ↗

The HSE continue to inspect premises that use Metalworking Fluids (MWF).

Exposure to MWF can cause occupational asthma, hypersensitivity pneumonitis, skin irritation and dermatitis. All of these are avoidable with the correct control measures in place. There is no known safe level of exposure to MWF and levels must be reduced to as low as reasonably practicable (ALARP).

Our updated one-page summary explains what employers need to do to ensure compliance with the COSHH regulations and protect their staff from ill-health.

For further information or to discuss your control measures, please contact Rosie McKay.
