COSHH Awareness Training

Introduction

The COSHH Awareness course is aimed at people who deal with hazardous substances on a day to day basis. Delegates will be briefed on the importance of procedures, safe handling and risk assessment of hazardous substances within their organisation. At the conclusion of the course, delegates will have a sound understanding of their personal and legal responsibilities for the control of chemical and hazardous substances.


The COSHH Awareness course will cover relevant issues likely to affect persons using chemicals and harmful substances including:


  • COSHH regulations and principles
  • Undertaking a suitable COSHH risk assessment and identifying controls
  • The need for safe use and storage of hazardous substances (including PPE)
  • Preparing and maintaining records (including Material Safety Data Sheets)
  • Undertaking appropriate training
  • Health surveillance

  • Course Material

    Each delegate will be issued with a workbook to assist them both during and after the course, which will contain information, guidance and forms to assist workers. The course is designed to be interactive, allowing delegates the opportunity to develop their skills with the support of the course tutor.

    In-house and Bespoke Courses


    With so many different and varying COSHH risks in existence depending upon the individual workplace and industry, a COSHH course attended by individuals from different organisations will really only be able to provide a limited amount of relevant information to each of them according to the actual hazards which they may encounter.


    We primarily run this course for businesses and organisations who put a number of their employees on the course. As they all face the same COSHH dangers, the training can be highly targeted to provide maximum benefit and complete relevance. Not only does this allow each attendee to learn far more during the time, but also provides much greater value for money.


    This course can also be combined with one or more of our other courses to create a truly bespoke training programme for your employees. For more information about a bespoke in-house COSHH course please call 0115 984 9940 to speak with one of our training advisers, or send us an online contact form with a description of your training requirements.
