This has led to the formulation of the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health regulations of 1988 and 1994. The second edition of this essential reference book has been published to offer guidance on the implementation of the 1994 regulations. The approach taken is practical and pragmatic, and the advice offered provides a sensible way to implement the new COSHH regulations. All those who manage and work in laboratories will find this new book an excellent guide on good working practice, which will enable them to work more safely.
