We deal with substances that could be hazardous to our health on a daily basis and it’s important to determine what appropriate action should be taken when handling of substances hazardous to health occurs. The Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 2002 requires employers to control exposure to hazardous substances to prevent ill-health.
This course provides delegates with knowledge and understanding of the COSHH risk assessment process and the skills required to undertake a suitable and sufficient risk assessment. Our trainers use fun and informational techniques to provide you with confidence in handling substances hazardous to health.
This course is for any delegates who are responsible for the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) at work, as well as employees who use hazardous substances in all industries such as manufacturing, cleaning, healthcare, transport, utilities and offices.
If this course is to be delivered on an inhouse basis, the tutor can tailor the training to the client’s needs; it is an effective way of teaching an organisation about substances relevant to them. The course can also cover the relevant risks that the workers will face. In comparison to a general overview, the trainer can help specific organisations implement procedures that everyone will understand, as opposed to delivering a generic course.
