COSHH Compliance: Safeguarding Your UK Pharmaceutical Lab

The Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) 2002 regulations are paramount in protecting employees from exposure to hazardous substances, especially within the highly regulated environment of UK pharmaceutical laboratories. Fume cupboards, equipped with their integral local exhaust ventilation (LEV) systems, are critical in mitigating risks associated with the handling of potent pharmaceutical compounds.

COSHH Regulation 9 specifically mandates proactive maintenance and thorough examination of LEV systems, including fume cupboards, to ensure optimal control and protection. This involves maintaining fume cupboards in peak working condition, conducting thorough examinations and testing at least every 14 months, and potentially more frequently for high-risk pharmaceutical processes.

For UK pharmaceutical laboratories, adhering to COSHH regulations is not only a legal obligation but a fundamental aspect of ensuring the safety and well-being of your research staff and the integrity of your research. Partnering with a qualified service provider like Holliday Technical Services, specialising in fume cupboard testing and maintenance for pharmaceutical facilities, ensures your lab meets and exceeds these critical safety standards.

By prioritising COSHH compliance and investing in expert fume cupboard maintenance, your pharmaceutical lab fosters a safe, productive, and compliant research environment, enabling you to focus on your critical work with confidence.

Pharmaceutical fume cupboard Faqs

How Often Should Fume Cupboards in UK Pharmaceutical Labs Be Tested?

UK regulations, specifically the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH), mandate that fume cupboards in pharmaceutical laboratories undergo a thorough examination and testing at least every 14 months. This ensures that your fume cupboards consistently operate at peak performance, effectively containing and removing hazardous pharmaceutical substances, and safeguarding the health and safety of your research personnel.

Increased Frequency for High-Risk Labs

Pharmaceutical labs handling particularly high-risk compounds or utilising fume cupboards frequently may require more frequent testing to maintain optimal safety standards. It's crucial to assess your specific laboratory practices and consult with experts to determine the appropriate testing schedule for your facility.

What Standards Do Fume Cupboards in UK Pharmaceutical Labs Need to Meet?

UK pharmaceutical laboratories must adhere to stringent safety standards for fume cupboards to ensure the protection of staff and the integrity of research. For ducted fume cupboards, the primary standard is BS EN 14175, which outlines critical guidelines for design, construction, and performance. For ductless filtered fume cupboards, BS 7989 is the applicable standard.

These standards, along with other relevant regulations such as HSG 258 and COSHH, provide a framework for ensuring fume cupboards effectively contain and remove hazardous pharmaceutical substances. They cover aspects like face velocity, containment, filter efficiency, and overall safety features.

At Holliday Technical Services, we are fully committed to upholding these standards in all our fume cupboard testing and maintenance services. Our experienced engineers meticulously assess your fume cupboards, regardless of type, to ensure they meet or exceed the requirements of all relevant standards and regulations. We guarantee optimal safety and compliance for your pharmaceutical lab, giving you peace of mind and allowing you to focus on your critical research.

With over 18 years of experience serving the pharmaceutical industry, we have a proven track record of providing outstanding fume cupboard testing and maintenance services that adhere to the highest safety standards. Contact us today to discuss your specific needs and ensure your lab's fume cupboards are operating safely and effectively.

When Should You Replace Your Fume Cupboard in a UK Pharmaceutical Lab?

While regular maintenance and testing can significantly extend the lifespan of your fume cupboards, there are situations where replacement becomes necessary to ensure optimal safety and performance in your pharmaceutical lab:

  1. Failed Safety Tests: If your fume cupboard consistently fails safety tests despite regular maintenance and filter replacements, it's a strong indicator that it may no longer be effectively protecting your personnel and research.

  2. Obsolete Technology: Older fume cupboards may lack the advanced safety features and energy efficiency of newer models. Upgrading to a modern fume cupboard can enhance safety, reduce operating costs, and improve the overall performance of your lab.

  3. Significant Damage or Wear: Extensive damage or wear to critical components like the sash, liner, or motor can compromise the fume cupboard's ability to contain hazardous substances. In such cases, replacement may be more cost-effective than repeated repairs.

  4. Changing Research Needs: If your pharmaceutical research involves new or different hazardous substances, your existing fume cupboard may not be adequately equipped to handle them. Upgrading to a model with specialised features or filtration systems can ensure proper containment and protection.

  5. Age: Fume cupboards typically have a lifespan of 10-15 years, depending on usage and maintenance. If your fume cupboard is nearing the end of its expected lifespan, proactive replacement can prevent unexpected breakdowns and safety risks.

Holliday Technical Services can assess your existing fume cupboards and provide expert recommendations on whether repair, maintenance, or replacement is the most appropriate course of action for your UK pharmaceutical lab. Our sister company Holliday Fielding Hocking Ltd is a UK specialist supplier of new fume cupboards and quality refurbished fume cupboards. They are the original fume cupboard provider serving the Uk for over 5 generations.
