Darren will be giving an overview on the recent HSE consultation on the implementation of Carcinogens and Mutagens Directive (2004/37/EC), which introduces or revises occupational exposure limit values for a number of carcinogens such as respirable crystalline silica (RCS), Chromium VI, refractive ceramic fibres and hardwood dusts. He will discuss what implications the new classifications will mean for employers and what will be expected of them.

Alongside this, Darren will also be exploring the new HSE ‘safety alert’ on welding fumes. As welding fume is now considered to be a class 1 carcinogen, the HSE will be expecting organisations to review risk assessments and to monitor exposure and controls, not just for the welder but those risking secondary exposures in the work area. Darren will take you through what is expected of employers in order to meet the requirements of the COSHH regulations.
