What’s It About?

This Level 2 COSHH course will give you knowledge of the health risks surrounding work with hazardous substances.  It also includes how to undertake a COSHH assessment and how to work safely with hazardous substances.

The term COSHH is an abbreviation of “the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health”.  It is concerned with preventing damage to a person’s health through exposure to harmful substances. This exposure can be through various means including inhalation, ingestion and absorption through the skin.

During this half-day Level 2 COSHH course, candidates will develop their understanding of the law relating to hazardous substances in the workplace and the precautions and procedures required to ensure they are properly controlled, as well as learn how risk assessments contribute to the safe use of hazardous substances

What Will You Gain?

By attending this Level 2 COSHH course, you will learn how to identify hazardous substances in your workplace.  You will also understand the effects that hazardous substances can cause.

Furthermore, you will also understand COSHH regulations, including the responsibilities of employers and employees.

In conclusion, on returning to the workplace, you will know what to consider when conducting a COSHH risk assessment.  You will understand the importance of health surveillance for those who work with hazardous substances.

Who Should Attend?

This half-day Level 2 COSHH course is for anyone who works with or is exposed to hazardous substances. Hazardous substances include chemicals (that people make or work with directly), dust, fumes and bacteria.

Why’s It Important?

Under the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) Regulations 2002,  it states that; ‘every employer who undertakes work, which is liable to expose an employee to a substance hazardous to health, shall provide that employee with suitable and sufficient information, instruction and training.’

Every year, thousands of workers become ill by hazardous substances, contracting lung diseases such as asthma, cancer and dermatitis. These diseases cost millions of pounds each year to businesses, society and individuals.

The employer is responsible for taking effective measures to control exposure and protect health. If you fail to control hazardous substances adequately, it may result in lost productivity, possible enforcement action, prosecution and compensation claims from your employees.
