This half-day COSHH Awareness course focuses on the basic understanding of the COSHH regulations. It will also develop your ability to successfully risk assess the chemicals or naturally occurring substances and/or compounds on your site, or place of work.
The step by step overview will ensure that you have a basic competence to undertake the review using all of the associated documentation and information. On completion you will also be able to detail any further recommendations, outstanding actions, additional training and future control measures. It will provide a standard level of competency, but equally should identify your limitations too and where additional guidance, support and knowledge should be sought. If your site or place of work utilises or stores very hazardous, highly complex chemicals, then again, a more in-depth course would be recommended.
