COSHH Essentials

Overview

Let me start by asking you this; do you work with harmful substances?

If you answered no – it’s likely you have fallen for a common hazardous substance myth. It might not be obvious, but the reality is most workplaces use substances that can be hazardous to health. 

Chemicals and other hazardous substances can put your health at risk, so understandably, the law requires employers to control exposure to such substances under the Control of Substance Hazardous to Health regulations – often shortened to COSHH.

This introduction to COSHH course explains what a hazardous substance is and where they can be found in the workplace. You’ll find out what kinds of health risks are associated with them and we’ll also cover the benefits of following COSHH guidelines.
