Principles of COSHH
Only £30 per person
1/2 day course
For those whose work may expose them to hazardous substances. This COSHH training course is designed to give workers knowledge of the health risks surrounding work with hazardous substances, including how to undertake a COSHH assessment by identifying the risks and the control measures needed, and ensure that they understand how to work safely with hazardous substances.
By providing effective COSHH training, employers can help to ensure that everyone in the workplace is competent to carry out their work safely. COSHH is the law that requires employers to control substances that are hazardous to health.
The ‘substances’ part of COSHH includes any form of hazardous material, including liquids, solids, fumes, dust, vapours, fibres, nano-particles, mists, gases and biological agents such as bacteria and viruses. The ‘hazardous’ part of COSHH includes damage to lungs, skin, nose, mouth, genes, internal organs, eyes or central nervous system as well as the risk of injury due to combustion or explosion.
By following the COSHH Regulations, companies can save money and be more effective by reducing absenteeism and not having to replace trained workers. A healthy workforce means a healthy bottom line.
The best way to get a full understanding of what is and isn't covered by COSHH is to undergo this training.
