Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 2002 come into force

Implementation date: 21 November 2002

The Regulations extend the matters to be considered when carrying out an assessment of the risk from exposure to substances hazardous to health. They also detail the measures which the employer must take to prevent or adequately control the exposure of his employees to substances hazardous to health and extend the duties on employers with respect to health surveillance where an employee is found to have an identifiable disease or adverse health effect caused by exposure to a substance hazardous to health. The Regulations can be viewed on the OPSI website.
