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.



Course Content



  • 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

Who Is The Course For?



This course is suitable for managers and employees alike in all types of workplaces and industries, as COSHH hazards will exist in all workplaces to some degree.

However, COSHH courses are much more effective when they are tailored to the types of hazardous substances which are present in your place of work and are therefore likely to be encountered by those on your premises.

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 delegates.

The COSHH Awareness course is designed to be interactive, allowing delegates the opportunity to develop their skills with the support of the course tutor.

Course Tutor



Our health and safety course tutors are qualified and experienced professionals with an appropriate background in this topic. All consultants are experienced in delivering engaging health and safety training, and hold professional membership of the chartered Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH).

Course Duration



This course is delivered over half a day (three hours). This enables the course to be provided to two different groups on one day, meaning that not all of your staff need to be away from the workplace at the same time.

Certification



Delegates will be awarded a certificate of attendance upon successful completion of the course.
