Metalworking Inspection Guide: handling cutting fluids

The Health & Safety Executive (HSE) is currently inspecting companies that handle cutting fluids, which can cause serious health problems such as lung disease, occupational dermatitis and cancers.

They want employers to keep records of quality checks to make sure the fluids are in good condition and ensure that robust controls are in place so that workers are exposed to them as little as possible.

Businesses need to review current controls for metalworking fluids (including training) and make sure controls like extraction are working properly.
