Workplace exposure limits tightened

With the recent introduction of new and revised workplace exposure limits (WELs) for 31 chemical substances published by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), Bureau Veritas is urging employers to carefully consider with how these changes may impact their organisation and employees.

The latest version of EH40/2005 Workplace exposure limits guidance1 by the HSE incorporates updated recommendations introduced last year by EU-OSHA (European Agency for Safety and Health at Work) in its fourth Indicative Occupational Exposure Limit Values (IOELV) Directive2. This guidance has been designed to inform those responsible for controlling exposure to hazardous substances at work, to ensure organisations are compliant with the COSHH Regulations 2002 and are providing a safe workplace environment for employees.
