UKLA Update MWF Good Practice Guidelines

UKLA Good Practice Guidelines for the Safe Handling and Disposal of Metalworking Fluids

In partnership with the Health and Safety Executive, the UKLA have updated their guidelines for the safe handling and disposal of metalworking fluids.

We encourage all our metalworking customers to familiarise themselves with the guidance and pay close attention to the addition of the Health Surveillance section, where there is now a greater emphasis on defining clear processes at the outset. See sections 2.1.2 and 2.2.1 where full guidance is given.

Our Metalworking customers who also take advantage of our PROCARE Fluid Mangement Service benefit from on site training which covers the risks to health and how these can be avoided by putting the correct procedures in place. You can learn more about our tiered service here, or call our knowledgeable team on 0114 285 2987 and they will be more than happy to answer your questions on how to safely manage your metalworking fluids.
