The HSE state that all employers must provide information, training and instruction to all staff who work with hazardous substances. This also includes cleaning staff and maintenance staff.
It is estimated that hazardous substances account for around 650,000 deaths every year, making it one of the biggest contributors to occupational deaths worldwide. By providing effective COSHH training, employers can help to ensure that everyone in the workplace is competent to carry out their work safely. Our COSHH course identifies hazardous substances, how they can be harmful, everyday storage, COSHH Risk Assessments and what they are used for.
All levels of staff and management should be able to recognise the potential hazards posed by their work, be able to take action to reduce or eliminate the risks and understand the role of personal protection in ensuring good occupational health.
Equip your staff with the knowledge needed to safely store hazardous chemicals and how to respond if they are exposed to hazardous chemicals; as well as giving them a solid understanding of the hazard symbols and the '6 simple steps'.
This course concludes with a multiple choice test with a downloadable and 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.
