Handle COSHH safely
COSHH Awareness course informs you of the dangers of chemical substances and aims to make sure that you or your company follow the relevant rules and regulations. You will also learn how to conduct a COSHH risk assessment in your workplace to ensure that you and others do not come into contact with them.
Many people tasked with COSHH assessments are unsure what is required or where to get information. Once the initial assessment is complete, they are often uncertain on how to approach control and how to judge when control is adequate. This course aims to give that knowledge and those skills.
WHO SHOULD PARTICIPATE?
The course will benefit anyone tasked with completing COSHH assessments and/or implementing controls, whether for the first time or to improve skills. This will typically include managers and supervisors and safety officers. Health and safety professionals looking to refresh or update their skills may also benefit, but please note that the course assumes no prior knowledge and therefore includes basic concepts and information.
