Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH)


Hazardous substances can have the wrong influence not just on people who are around it regularly, but also those who may have never come into contact with it before.  There is more information on hazardous substances in the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) course. It is comprehensive and will provide a thorough overview of the risks to one’s health when dealing with hazardous substances. You will learn to recognise the risks of hazardous substances and understand what control measures to implement to ensure there is safety in the workplace. The Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 2002, regulation 12 states that an organisation which undertakes work that may expose employees to hazardous substances which can eventually impact their overall health must provide these employees with the necessary training and information to ensure their health and safety remain intact. If you’re a manager you must make the employee’s safety a priority, and employees themselves must cooperate fully with your employer to ensure you meet legal requirements.

Control of Substances Hazardous to Health features practical information and guidance on ensuring employees in the workplace are able to carry out their work in a safe manner.  Staff members, supervisors and managers should be able to identify the hazards posed in the workplace and take the necessary course of action to minimise or eliminate these risks and follow the relevant procedures to stay safe. This is an IIRSM approved course which demonstrates to potential employers that you are continually developing yourself, and will make you a desirable candidate.
