Covered in this course

The COSHH Training course is broken down into 3 sections.

1) Hazardous Substances, coming into contact with them and the effects of exposure

Substances that are hazardous to our health have been around for as long as mankind itself and many substances can cause risks to your health and safety if you don't handle them properly. So aside from the obvious things like bleach or acid, you need to be careful of all the substances that COSHH covers. In this section, we cover a variety of hazardous substances, how to handle them and the effects of exposure.

2) Hazard Symbols

There’s a system, known as the Globally Harmonized System, that’s been adopted worldwide for each country to base their own legislation on. This system requires manufacturers of all chemicals in every country to provide information about the health risks the substances pose, so regardless of language, we all have the same understanding of the hazards. After completing this section you'll have a solid understanding of all of the COSHH Hazard Symbols.

3) 6 Simple Steps

This section takes a look at the various ways that your organisation can reduce and control the risks to your health and safety; and what you need to do if there’s an accident or emergency - this can be done by following our 6 Simple Steps.

COSHH Certificate

Each of our courses ends with a multiple choice test to measure your knowledge of the material.

This COSHH Training course concludes with a 20 question multiple choice test with a printable certificate. In addition, brief in-course questionnaires guide the user through the sections of the training and are designed to reinforce learning and ensure maximum user engagement throughout.

As well as printable user certificates, training progress and results are all stored centrally in your LMS (Learning Management System) and can be accessed any time to reprint certificates, check and set pass marks and act as proof of a commitment to ongoing legal compliance.

Legislation relating to COSHH

It's important that you comply with the law and know the ways in which it affects you and the way you work. Take a look at relevant legislation below.

The Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 2002

The Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 2002 places duties on employers to protect employees (and anyone else who comes into the workplace) from the hazards of substances used in that work environment. It requires that potential risk must be assessed; any potential exposure controlled; procedures must be put in place to deal with accidents, incidents and emergencies; and finally, that information, instruction and training must be supplied for persons who may be exposed to substances hazardous to health.
