To understand the important role that COSHH cupboards play in the workplace, perhaps, first of all, it is a good idea to know exactly what COSHH is.
To give it its full name is, “Control of Substances Hazardous to Health”. It is a United Kingdom law and was introduced in its current guise in 2002. Essentially, it stipulates that all employers are responsible for protecting their workforce from any substances that are hazardous to health while at the place of work.
These substances could include anything from chemicals, fumes and dust to gases and biological agents (and more besides).
Although primarily associated with industrial sectors, these substances could be found in many different kinds of employment, so the COSHH cabinets and cupboards are required in a variety of environments.
At Direct Storage we supply these cupboards in a variety of sizes and all are specifically designed to safely and securely store all of the items or substances that fall under the COSSH law. They are strong and robust (made entirely from steel) and all the seams are welded for greater strength and integrity to ensure that the risk of leakages is vastly reduced. Each shelf is designed to carry 90kg in weight and all cabinets clearly display “Harmful and Irritant” labels.
Along with our COSHH cupboards and hazardous substances cabinets, we also stock a large array of other storage cupboards for both specialised and standard sectors. In addition, we also stock warehouse equipment and accessories, workbenches and equipment for schools.
