This course covers what you need to know about the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) and the health and safety measures surrounding it. It’s aimed at anyone who is exposed to hazardous substances at work, as well as line managers with responsibility for such people. Anyone who works with hazardous substances needs to have COSHH awareness and knowledge about the hazardous to health regulations.
So what do we mean by ‘Substances Hazardous to Health’? In legal terms, these are substances that are classified as “very toxic, toxic, harmful, corrosive or Irritant” under the Classification, Labelling and Packaging Regulation (CLP). This was a new regulation that came into force in January 2009 dovetailing with a set of regulations called REACH. REACH is a European Union regulation concerning the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation, and Restriction of Chemicals, which came into force on 1st June 2007. One of the main aims of REACH is to provide a high level of protection for human health and the environment from the use of chemicals.
This course is aimed at anyone who may work with hazardous substances or anyone that employs people, knowing they are going to have to work with such dangerous substances and therefore will need an appropriate amount of COSHH training. If a business needs any COSHH risk assessments, then this is another reason to undergo the training course we provide.
