Sypol COSHH risk assessment
Corporate health and safety launched the online COSHH (Control of Substances Hazardous to Health) risk assessment tool Sypol in October 2018. Six face to face training sessions have been delivered to assist staff with using the system. As of April 2019, Corporate Health and Safety will no longer provide face to face training on Sypol.
A comprehensive Sypol user guide (pdf) has been created which guides users on how to use the tool.
The guide includes how to create, copy, print and save COSHH risk assessments. There is also reference to the Assessment Interpretation Manual which provides useful information such as symbol definitions and a glossary of terms. In addition, contact details of the Sypol helpdesk (open Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm) are also provided.

If any school requires a member of staff to use the Sypol tool and they do not already have an account set up, please forward them the above user guide. Once they have gone through the guide, they should contact Corporate Health and Safety for a user name and password for Sypol.
