||Control banding (CB) strategies are designed to control workplace chemical exposures after the completion of a qualitative risk assessment. Joint labor/management teams and individuals from 34 workplaces attended a control banding workshop and learned how to use a specific CB model, that of HSE's COSHH Essentials Toolkit (see CIS 00-675). Follow-up workshops, questionnaires, site visits and case studies were used to evaluate the effectiveness of this CB approach. It was found that that the model is easily learned, although several areas for improvement were identified.
