Activity InterventionControl of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations (COSHH) (1989)
Participation Rate100 consecutive patients with OA seen at a specialist occupational lung disease clinic were the sample (Participation rate: 100%)
Intervention EffectivenessAfter introduction of COSHH, subjects, who worked in larger firms and were exposed to one of the original seven prescribed agents had a tendency to be informed, instructed and trained more than the rest. A statistically significant difference was only found in material data sheet provision between those who worked before COSHH and those employed afterward.
