This half-day COSHH Awareness course focuses on the basic understanding of the COSHH regulations. It will also develop the delegate’s ability to successfully risk assess the chemicals or naturally occurring substances and/or compounds on their site, or place of work.
The step by step overview will ensure that delegates have a basic competence to undertake the review using all of the associated documentation and information.
On completion delegates 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 limitations too and where additional guidance, support and knowledge should be sought.
If the delegate’s site or place of work utilises or stores very hazardous, highly complex chemicals, then again, a more in-depth course would be recommended.
This COSHH Awareness course will cover the following topic areas:
- Legal responsibilities: HASWA etc ACT 1974
- COSHH Regulations – 1988 amended 2002
- EH40 2005
- COSHH symbols
- PPE regulations 1992
- Brief Guide to COSHH – HSE document downloadable from the HSE website Indg136 Rev 5
