COSHH (Control of Substances Hazardous to Health)

COSHH Course Description

The course covers the practical use and importance of knowing the regulations about Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COHH) and how to apply procedures and practices in the workplace to protect against injury or illnesses. Control is necessary for many workplaces and applies outside the more hazardous environment from chemicals found in manufacturing and research. Some everyday substances such as paints, oil and toilet cleaners present a hazard. You and your employer are responsible under the law to protect those who are working or could come into contact with these substances.

This level 2 course covers the fundamentals of hazard and risk assessment and management. We cover all aspects of the topic including the latest CPL regulations.

The course time is four hours and can be taken together with our health & safety courses to make a full day if needed. COSSH Aims and Objectives
