The Control of Hazardous Substances section sets out to explain the specific regulations that exist with regards to control of use of the multitude of different materials and substances on site, many of which may present a risk to health if they are not used in the correct manner. It aims to explain the necessary precautions needed to ensure that employers and those in control of work make adequate arrangements to reduce the risks to those affected by work
