The Control Of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) regulations are an important part of the makerspace health and safety. It is vital that all members understand our basic COSHH policy to protect themselves and any visitors to the space.

In summary the policy is very simple; all substances that might be hazardous are kept in a lockable storage cupboard along with full safety datasheets in our COSHH folder. It is up to all members to make sure this information is up to date and that methods of control are available at the space for any of the substances. For example: Flammable liquids such as petrol should have suitable fire fighting equipment available near where they may be used such as a fire blanket for emergencies and a bucket of sand for accidental spillage.

The chemical cupboard is located in the corner of the workshop underneath the woodstore shelf.

COSHH Cabinet

We should invest in a padlock and/or better cabinet when possible!

More information on COSHH can be found on the HSE website.

We keep a log of chemicals here which members should keep updated.
