  • Overview & Objectives – COSHH+


    The training and support system unique to Selden Research.

    Provides COSHH / H&S awareness and guidance tailored to products in use at a given site.

    Offers a product overview to help users understand the chemicals applications, appropriate usage, PPE requirements and any other additional important factors.

    This document provides additional information regarding the Selden product range in use on your site.

    The contents of this document are here to support training or to be utilised as a reference for future use. Essential product information for each product is included, along with ‘best practice’ guidance for handling cleaning chemicals. An overview of COSHH is included.

    Please note, this document does not replace the proper and essential role of good training in the workplace. The employer is ultimately responsible for the welfare of their staff and this document should not be considered as a substitution for that training.

  • C.O.S.H.H.

    Control of Substances Hazardous to Health

    Aim of COSHH?

    To protect people against risks to their health, whether immediate or delayed, from substances hazardous to health arising from a work activity

    COSHH is a legal objective and requirement. It is there to enforce and raise safety standards in the workplace. It is there to reduce the frequency and severity of accidents involving chemicals and other hazardous substances.

    COSHH is based on identifying the hazard of a substance and then determining the risk…

    handling of chemicals

    Report any spillages,

    accidents and concerns

    If in doubt – ASK!

    COSHH is everyone’s responsibility. We are all responsible for complying with COSHH. COSHH falls under the scope of the Health and Safety at Work act.

    Ignorance of the law is no defence and should your actions (or inaction) cause an accident you could be charged with anything from negligence to manslaughter.

    Therefore, it is important that you fully understand your responsibility –not only to ensure your safety and your colleagues safety, but also to avoid falling foul of the law.

    This may all sound rather alarming. Thankfully, it is really very, very simple to stay legal and stay safe…

  • Hazards and Risks?

    A Hazard

    Is the potential of a substance to cause you harm

    A Risk

    Is the likelihood that it will harm you in use, this

    depends on :

    • the hazard

    • how it is used

    • how it is controlled

    • who is exposed, to how much, for how long

    • what they are doing• what they are doing

    Consider a hazardous chemical such as an oven cleaner. This is a very strong chemical and will clearly be labeled as such. It has the potential to cause harm if it is splashed onto the skin or into the eyes.

    We need a strong product to properly and effectively clean the oven, so we cannot mitigate or reduce the hazard of the task. However, we can manage the risk better, By ensuring we wear gloves to protect our skin and goggles to protect the eyes we reduce the risk of suffering harm.

    COSHH is all about identifying the hazards and managing the risks…

  • The Golden Rules of Chemical Safety

    Think SAFETY!

    ALWAYS treat all chemicals with respect - familiarity can breed complacency.

    AVOID personal contact with chemicals. Protect the skin and eyes. Avoid swallowing / inhaling.

    ALWAYS wear protective equipment. Use eye protection, gloves, protective workwear, etc.

    ALWAYS obey instructions supplied with the chemicals - Refer to labels & safety literature.

    ALWAYS replace closures on containers.

    ALWAYS store chemicals correctly.ALWAYS store chemicals correctly.

    ALWAYS ensure that safe systems of work are implemented whenever chemicals are handled.

    ALWAYS know the emergency first aid procedures.

    Pay attention to the particular hazards of individual chemicals. eg corrosives.


    NEVER indulge in horseplay.

    NEVER smoke, eat or drink near chemicals: use only designated areas.

    NEVER mix chemicals unless specialised knowledge is available.

  • DPD - the old CHIP symbolsyou will still see these symbols! Although all new products will have the CLP labels, it is highly likely that you will still have old style labelled products on site and will continue to receive them for some time. Therefore - it is important you are still able to recognise the old symbols.

    CLP - Chemical Labelling and PackagingDPD - Dangerous Preparations Directive

    On June 1st 2015 the labelling of chemicals radically changed. The way products have their safety information presented was changed and - more importantly - the way the calculations are done to determine a products hazard changed too. The most obvious change for you is to the hazard symbols.

    Manufacturers are no longer legally permitted to produce products with ‘old’ DPD labels.

    Product already manufatured and in the marketplace can still be sold. In other words, distributors of these products can continue to supply DPD labelled stock for a further two years (until June 1st 2017).

    Consumer/end-users of the product do not have any timescales. You may continue

    whilst the product is still ‘in date’).

    Irritant (Xi)

    the skin or other mucous membranes.

    This symbol covers a wide range of (sometimes relatively minor) hazards - with precautions such as avoid contact with the skin, do not breathe, etc Anyone using an irritant substance should wear eye protection such as goggles, and they should take care to wash any spills off their skin immediately.

    Harmful (Xn)Chemicals that may cause damage to health.

    Again, this is quite a wide ranging category. Anyone using a harmful substance should wear eye protection such as goggles, and they should take care to wash any spills off their skin immediately – or better still, reduce the risk of contact by wearing appropriate work wear and gloves.

    Corrosive (C)May, on contact, cause destruction of living tissue or burns.

    Can attack and destroy skin, eyes etc. Concentrated solutions of strong acids would be labelled with the corrosive symbol. Concentrated solutions of strong alkalis would also be labelled this way. Anyone using a corrosive substance should wear gloves and eye protection, such as goggles or a face shield.

    Toxic (T)Chemicals that at low levels cause damage to health.

    Anyone using a toxic or very toxic chemical would need to take great care. They should wear gloves and eye protection, and they may wear a mask over their mouth and nose or handle the chemical in well ventilated or specialist conditions.

    Very Toxic (T+)Chemicals that at very low levels cause damage to health.

    Only a handful of actual cleaning chemicals fall under this category. This symbol is more often seen on aerosol

    Aerosols will always carry a warning about avoiding sources of ignition, direct sunlight and heat.

    Highly Flammable (F)

    Extremely Flammable (F+)

    air, only need brief contact with an ignition

    Oxidising (O)Chemicals that react exothermically with other chemicals.This sort of chemical is extremely rare in cleaning. Oxidising chemicals are materials that spontaneously evolve oxygen at room temperature or with slight heating, or that promote combustion. To be kept away

    Dangerous for the Environment (N)Chemicals that may present an immediate or delayed danger to one or more components of the environment.

    A rarity in the Selden product range. Selden have a very

    powerful bactericidal products often carry this symbol as

    Explosive (E)Chemicals that explode.

    We know of no cleaning chemical that bears this symbol. If we discover one – we will avoid using it! This sort of chemical requires an ignition source (such

    that movement alone could trigger it!

  • CLP - understanding the changenot just a hazard symbol! The hazard symbols are not to be viewed on their own - they must be assessed in conjunction with the other safety information presented on the label.Hazard Symbol(s)New CLP icon highlighting the hazards applicable to the product. These

    symbols are to draw your attention and instruct you to read the additional hazard information text.

    Signal WordHighlights the severity of the hazard (“Warning” or “Danger”)

    Hazard StatementsThese replace the old CHIP risk (R) phrases. This is key information and

    Precautionary StatementsReplace the old CHIP safety (S) phrases. These are the instructions that must be followed. These phrases state what you must do, what PPE is required, any additional control measures. In addition these phrases can tell what to do in the event of accidental exposure, how to store the product and how to dispose of it.

    CLP - Chemical Labelling and Packaging

    The new hazard symbol shave been adopted Europe wide on the 1st June 2015. These symbols are part of

    eventually be standard across the world.

    It is important to understand that the change is not simply a different hazard icon.

    Not all ‘irritant’ products will become ‘exclamation’. Some products that were previously irritant may now be classed as corrosive.

    Indeed, some previously unclassifed

  • PPE : Personal Protection Equipment

    You must make full use of any Personal Protective Equipment which is provided for your use. If you are in any doubt over the correct PPE required for a given task then ASK!

    Never overlook your overalls as a means of protection. They may seem pretty flimsy but they can protect you from all sorts of potential hazards. Be sure to use them as intended, not with the sleeves rolled up to clean an oven, for example. And don’t forget to change them immediately if any chemical is spilled on them.

    Gloves and gauntlets will give excellent protection of hands and forearms, even if you do find them uncomfortable to wear.

    “understanding and

    utilising safety


    Goggles are essential when handling any chemical which could spill or splash. You only get one pair of eyes, so look after them.

    In some situations it may be necessary to wear some protection on your feet. This may be the case if you are washing down a waste disposal area, and run the risk of walking through a solution of water and chemicals.

    IFHM COSHH+ Kit Page 10 of 23

  • First Aid

    EyesRinse immediately with plenty of water, holding the eyelids open and seek medical advice immediately if corrosive, irritant or caustic products, for all other classifications seek medical advice if effects persist.

    InhalationRemove from source of vapour or spray mist and seek medical advice.

    SkinWash thoroughly, (for corrosive, irritant or caustic products seek medical advice)

    “accidents can happen –

    take the correct actions


    IngestionRemove product from mouth, Never induce vomiting, if conscious give plenty of water or milk to drink and seek medical advice..

    In the event of medical advice being sought, we strongly suggest giving the material safety datasheet to the medical practitioner. You should be aware of where the MSDS are retained on your site. In fact, we would recommend keeping a photocopy in each cleaning cupboard/store for ease and speed of access.
