||Health problems can arise if metalworking fluids are not properly used and controlled. Dermatitis is the most common disease among users of metalworking fluids, followed by respiratory complaints such as asthma among workers exposed to aerosols and mists of these fluids. This booklet provides an overview of health surveillance required under the provisions of the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) Regulations 1999 (see CIS 00-620) as they apply to persons exposed to metalworking fluids. Appendices include check lists for the detection of skin or breathing abnormalities.
