Control of Major Accident Hazards Regulations 2015 (COMAH).

Experienced COMAH Support Service

When planning to begin handling or storing large quantities of dangerous substances, businesses may become subject to the Control of Major Accident Hazards Regulations 2015 (COMAH). The Regulations may also apply if a business decides to increase the quantities of dangerous substances that they already store or handle.

The Wilkins Safety Group offers you a full range of technical and management expertise to implement COMAH requirements successfully.
