Petrol COSHH Assessment

If you employ people at a petrol filling-station or a site where petrol is stored and/or dispensed as a fuel, then you are legally obliged to undertake a petrol COSHH risk assessment.

On the 1st October 2014 new Petroleum (Consolidation) Regulations 2014 will come into effect. It is essential that you are abiding by legal regulations.  

Petrol COSHH Assessment

A petrol COSHH (the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health) risk assessment involves identifying and evaluating the hazards associated with working with and dispensing petrol.

Under COSHH and DSEAR (the Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations) petrol must be regulated and controlled by the employer. The employer has a legal duty to ensure that both COSHH and DSEAR are being met.

The simplest way to ensure that your business is meeting COSHH and DSEAR is to undertake a petrol COSHH assessment.
