InsightUK will have issued RAMS for your works, these RAMS will have identify the Hazardous Substance that are to be used and/or encountered whilst carrying out the applicable works.

Below are the COSH Data Sheets and Assessments for the applicable Substances identified.

Select the Substance from the menu to the right.

Oils and Greases

At the most basic level, oil and grease both perform the same general function: to prevent metal-on-metal contact and protect your equipment from wear.

COSHH DATA & ASSESSMENTS

Hazardous Substances

Paints & Aerosols

Paint is used to decorate, protect and prolong the life of natural and synthetic materials, and acts as a barrier against environmental conditions. Aerosol cans are used as a delivery method to include air fresheners, cleaning agents, car cosmetics, paints and varnishes, etc.

COSHH Assessments

Bitumen Products

Bituminous materials are used for road construction, roofing, waterproofing, and other applications. For the main application, which is road construction, the major concerns, as with concrete, are cost and durability.

Acids

Acids are often used to remove rust and other corrosion from metals in a process known as pickling. They may be used as an electrolyte in a wet cell battery, such as sulfuric acid in a car battery.

Sealants

Sealants are used in construction to prevent fluids and other substances from passing through material surfaces, joints, or openings. They can also prevent the passage of air, sound, dust, insects, and so on, as well as acting as a firestopping component

Liquid Fuels

Liquid fuels are combustible or energy-generating molecules that can be harnessed to create mechanical energy, usually producing kinetic energy; they also must take the shape of their container. It is the fumes of liquid fuels that are flammable instead of the fluid.

Fumes, Dusts, Vapors, Mists

Dust is the collective term for extremely fine solid particles in gases, especially in the air, that result from mechanical processes or have become part of the air because they were raised. Mist consists of fine drops of liquid (especially water drops) in the air. Fume are gaseous residues of combustion.

COSHH Assessments

Gasses and Asphyxiating Gases

Gases are the phase of matter in which particles are usually very far apart from one another, move very quickly. Asphyxiating Gases are a nontoxic or minimally toxic gas which reduces or displaces the normal oxygen concentration in breathing air. Breathing of oxygen-depleted air can lead to death by asphyxiation

COSHH Data Sheets

COSHH Assessments

Biological Agents

A biological agent is a bacterium, virus, protozoan, parasite, or fungus that can be used purposefully as a weapon in bioterrorism or biological warfare. In addition to these living or replicating pathogens, toxins and biotoxins are also included among the bio-agents

COSHH Data Sheets

COSHH Assessments

Nanotechnology

Inhaled particulate matter can be deposited throughout the human respiratory tract, and an important fraction of inhaled nanoparticles deposit in the lungs. Nanoparticles can potentially move from the lungs to other organs such as the brain, the liver, the spleen and possibly the foetus in pregnant women.
