HSE has updated its guidance on dichloromethane


The new guidance will help those working with Dichloromethane (DCM) in paint stripping to comply with their duties under the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 2002 (as amended) to control exposure to hazardous substances and protect workers’ health. 


There is advice for managers and a direct advice sheet for stripping surface coatings from alloy wheels.
