COSHH - The Control Of Substances Hazardous to Health 2002

The Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) 2002 regulations prioritise employee protection from exposure to hazardous substances, particularly in laboratory environments. Here, fume cupboards with their integral local exhaust ventilation (LEV) systems play a crucial role in risk mitigation.

COSHH Regulation 9 mandates proactive maintenance for effective LEV control. This includes maintaining fume cupboards in optimal working order and good repair, with thorough examinations and testing conducted at least every 14 months, and potentially more frequently for high-risk processes.

By adhering to these regulations and partnering with a qualified service provider like Holliday Technical Services, universities, FE colleges and schools can achieve optimal safety standards while fostering productive teaching environments.

Testimonials From Clients Like You


How do I know if my fume cupboard is working properly?

Several things affect how well your fume cupboard protects your lab. Here's what to check:

  • Airflow speed: This is tested during your regular fume cupboard inspection. It needs to be strong enough to capture any hazards.
  • Sash height: Working with the sash too high disrupts airflow. Keep it at the marked working level.
  • What's inside: Don't overcrowd the fume cupboard, and minimise fast movements as these affect airflow.
  • Your lab environment: Open doors/windows or busy walkways near the fume cupboard can mess with its performance.
  • Maintenance matters: Regular testing, filter changes...these keep your fume cupboard doing its job safely.

HTS are fume cupboard specialists. We test and maintain fume cupboards in schools and universities across the UK, helping you ensure a safe lab environment.

What fume cupboard safety standards apply to my university lab?

Here's a quick breakdown of the most important standards for UK universities:

  • Must-Haves:

    • BS EN 14175: This covers the basics of fume cupboard design and how well it should contain hazards.
    • COSHH Regulations (2002): These are the legal requirements for protecting people in labs.
    • HSG 258: This gets into the technical details of how fume cupboards should be installed and tested.
  • Your University's Rules: They may have even stricter standards, so be sure to check your lab's safety handbook.

HTS helps your lab stay safe and compliant. We specialise in fume cupboard testing for schools, colleges and universities and know these standards inside and out. We also offer a full range of LEV services, including repairs, maintenance, parts (including filters) and new installations.

My students/researchers use fume cupboards daily. What are the main safety points they need to know?

Fume cupboards are powerful tools, but they're not fool proof. Emphasise these key points to keep your lab safe:

  • It's not a magic box: If the fume cupboard isn't working right (which your regular testing will catch), those hazards don't just disappear.
  • Technique matters: How they use the fume cupboard makes a big difference. Proper sash height, minimising clutter inside, etc. are all part of safe practice.
  • Accidents happen: Even a well-maintained fume cupboard can't prevent every risk, which is why PPE (gloves, safety glasses, lab coats) is always important.
  • Know the hazards: Every experiment needs to be assessed – is the fume cupboard the right tool for the job?

HTS helps protect your lab. We offer the thorough testing and maintenance that ensures your fume cupboards function as intended. We also understand the unique needs of schools and universities, tailoring our services to your environment.

What do I need to check before using a fume cupboard in my school lab?

Don't skip these essential safety steps before every experiment:

  1. Am I trained? Never use a fume cupboard without proper safety training from your school or university.
  2. Know the chemicals: What hazards do they pose? Are there special precautions needed?
  3. Is the airflow working? Check the gauge. If it's not right, STOP, and report the problem.
  4. Sash in place: Set it at the marked working height – this is crucial for your safety.
  5. Clear workspace: Don't overcrowd the fume cupboard, and work at least 6 inches back.
  6. PPE on! Lab coat, safety glasses, the right gloves for the chemicals you're using.

Problem? Don't use it! Report any fume cupboard issues to your teacher or lab supervisor right away.

HTS keeps school labs safe. We provide expert fume cupboard testing and maintenance, ensuring your equipment is always ready for learning.
