Abstract Many workers are exposed to a variety of substances at work, including chemicals, fumes and dusts, which can have a harmful effect on their health. If exposure to these hazardous substances is not properly controlled, it may cause ill health in a number of ways. This book contains advice and guidance about European occupational exposure limits, workplace exposure limits, the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 2002 (as amended) (COSHH) and approved workplace exposure limits. This edition of EH40 replaces the previous version, first published in 2005 (see CIS 05-401), and takes account of new substances and workplace exposure limits introduced in 2007 and 2011.
