Webinar: Are You Working Safely With Metalworking Fluids?

We are delighted to bring you this webinar involving collaboration between CHCS, the United Kingdom Lubricant Association (UKLA) and the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), the regulator for health and safety in Great Britain. The UKLA is the trade association for the lubricants sector representing the majority of companies in the UK, whose product stewardship group provides industry guidance, advice and good practice on the safe handling of metalworking fluids.

Metalworking fluids (MWF) can cause occupational asthma, occupational hypersensitivity pneumonitis and dermatitis. This webinar will improve your ability to manage the health hazards from MWF. It is aimed at health and safety managers, factory managers and engineers and will include:

  • A case study of an HSE investigation
  • A summary of the requirements for protecting the health of workers
  • An outline of the updated good practice guidance recently published by UKLA and HSE
  • A summary of the testing which must be performed on metalworking fluids, to maintain its quality and prevent risks to health
  • Q&A session

Our Presenters

The webinar will be presented by HSE, and members of the UKLA Product Stewardship Group. The presenters include Stephen Faulkner and Fiona McGarry, H M Inspectors of Health and Safety, HSE, Matt Bloomer, Technical Services Manager, Q8 Oils on behalf of UKLA and Gareth Evans, Principal Scientist, HSE Laboratory in Buxton.

With the combined experience of inspectors, scientists and metalworking fluid suppliers, the Q&A session is expected to be lively, and engaging.
