I'm self-employed.  Does COSHH apply to me?

Yes. 

If you have employees (you control their work), every part of COSHH applies.

If you have no employees (but you take hazardous substances to other peoples premises), all parts of COSHH regulations apply except those about monitoring and health surveillance.
