COSHH Awareness Training

COSHH awareness training helps your employees handle hazardous substances safely

Brought in to ensure the health and safety of workers being exposed to hazardous substances, the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) Regulations 2002 as amended, provides key requirements in relation to information, instruction and training.

Our COSHH awareness training simplifies the entire process through tutor-led lessons. We provide learning resources that are easy to remember and put into practice, ensuring you fulfil legislative requirements.

How do I identify a hazardous substance?

If you work with materials that have any of the GHS (Globally Harmonised system) safety marks, or the now-outdated CHIP hazard markers, then you are legally required to have COSHH awareness training.

Please be aware: if your manufacturing process creates hazardous materials, you’ll also need COSHH awareness training. If you’re not sure if this is the case, please get in touch with us and we’ll be able to help.

Where can I find additional information about the COSHH assessment process?

We have a dedicated page covering the COSHH risk assessment process.  The training provided here will provide a solid background of COSHH from which addtional actions can be taken.  The key is that employees working with hazardous substances need to understand COSHH first, which is why this training is so essential.
