Updated woodworking guidance published

Every year in the UK, around 12,000 people die from lung diseases linked to past exposure to hazardous substances at work.

This includes inhalation of wood dust that can cause occupational asthma and, in the case of hardwoods, sinonasal cancer.

 

Employers have a legal duty to ensure they comply with the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 2002 (COSHH), as amended, to:

  • control exposure to wood dusts
  • protect workers’ health

HSE updated COSHH essentials woodworking guidance will help you ensure your workers are safe.
