The Royal Mint - COSHH Testing and Servicing Case Study


The Royal Mint is a national treasure, making beautifully crafted coins and medals for countries all over the world.

The Royal Mint had previously completed inhouse checks, but wanted to bring in external expertise to ensure all checks were fully comprehensive – and that they had advice and guidance on how to proceed if any issues were picked up.

The company they chose needed to be able to demonstrate that they were able to work safely within the very hazardous environment caused by the presence of strong chemicals and the high heat from the forges.

Vent-Tech was able to demonstrate the expertise required and we were given the job. Additionally Vent-Tech understood the need to minimise downtime of the machinery, so worked around the production schedule.

The Result

Initially Vent-Tech was awarded the contract to COSHH test one building with 22 systems. Following this, the Royal Mint was so happy with the work that had been done that they expanded the brief to yearly tests of the entire site (79 systems).

As with all our COSHH testing clients, the results the Royal Mint receives are not just a simple pass or fail, but also advice and guidance about how any issues found can be resolved.

“ We have been very happy with the work that Vent-Tech has carried out at the Royal Mint. In particular the level of professionalism they have shown has been high, and we really value the level of advice we receive about practical improvements that can be made to the systems”
