The COSHH course begins by introducing the principles of the COSHH regulations, and explains the requirements for you, as an employer or an employee, within the regulatory framework. The course then describes the meaning of the term ‘hazardous substance’ and clarifies what is included under this term. It then outlines and explains the common routes of exposure to substances and the symbols currently used on packing, in line with European Union requirements.
The final section of the course looks at good practice in storing, using and disposing of hazardous substances, and the tools that can be used to support this process, for example, Safety Data Sheets and the ‘COSHH Essentials’ tool. The course outlines good practice in risk assessment for COSHH, explaining what should be included and how the assessment should be recorded, in line with guidelines produced by the Health and Safety Executive.
