The Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations (COSHH) place responsibility on employers and employees to control the use of substances hazardous to health to prevent or reduce the risks of exposure to those substances. For all work that involves a risk of exposure, a 'suitable and sufficient’ COSHH assessment is required to be made before any work is started. The assessment is a procedure that considers the risk to the health of employees created by that work and of the mitigation steps that need to be taken to meet the requirements of COSHH. The aim of the COSHH Assessment course is to inform you of the regulatory requirements and how to put them into a practical context in your own workplace. It provides guidance on the process of making a ‘suitable and sufficient’ assessment of the risks posed by work involving substance hazardous to health.
The one-day presentation comprises a series of modules that will:
- Provide an overview of the regulations and how they are linked together.
- Help you understand hazard and risk information, and where to find this on an SDS.
- Give you an understanding of the effects of exposure to the substances you might work with.
- Show you that even ‘non-hazardous’ substances are covered by the regulations.
- Guide you through the assessment process.
Who is this course for?
The COSHH Assessment course is for anyone who is or will be involved in working with hazardous substances and needs to understand how to make a COSHH assessment (e.g. safety, health and environment managers; laboratory practitioners; and other users or handlers of chemicals).
