About the COSHH Awareness Training Course

It's estimated that hazardous substances account for around 650,000 deaths every year worldwide. COSHH training will help keep your staff safe from substances that could be potentially harmful to their health and, in turn, your business. With a COSHH certificate, you will be trained to carry out a COSHH risk assessment, according to the COSHH regulations 2002, with an awareness of the necessary safety procedures and effects of hazardous substances.

If you manage or oversee workers who could come into contact with hazardous substances or if you're required to work with any hazardous substances as part of your day-to-day job, then you need COSHH training. COSHH applies to all industries using harmful substances, including catering, baking, beauty and hairdressing, cleaning, agriculture, engineering, motor vehicle repair and so on.

FAQ - THE COSHH AWARENESS TRAINING COURSE

Frequently Asked Questions

Take a look at the common COSHH questions our training experts get asked. 

If you can’t find what you’re looking for, please get in touch!

What is COSHH?

COSHH is a set of regulations that help protect the employees’ health when working with substances and materials. The term COSHH stands for 'Control of Substances Hazardous to Health'. 

Under the COSHH regulations 2002, employers are required to either prevent, reduce or control exposure to hazardous substances in order to prevent ill health. If this is breached by either an employer or employee, you can be punishable by an unlimited fine. 

The ‘substances’ part of COSHH includes any form of hazardous material, including liquids, solids, fumes, dust, vapours and gases. The ‘hazardous’ part includes damage to lungs, skin, nose, mouth, genes, internal organs, eyes or central nervous system as well as the risk of injury due to combustion or explosion. It's best to carry out a COSHH assessment if you have hazardous substances in your workplace to help identify them.

What are the 10 golden rules of COSHH?

The 10 golden rules of COSHH are: 

  1. Read the labels carefully and follow the instructions.
  2. Wear the appropriate protective clothing.
  3. Don't mix chemicals - mixing chemicals can kill.
  4. Never put chemicals into unmarked containers.
  5. Never put chemicals into bottles/containers that have other uses e.g.eating or drinking. 
  6. Know what first aid treatment is required if you spill chemicals on yourself or others.
  7. Store all chemicals safely.
  8. Report any damaged or faulty containers and spills.
  9. Follow the safety rules and develop safe working practices in the workplace.
  10. Report anything wrong to your supervisor.

It's important employers and employees follow these to ensure everyone's safety and good health. 

Is COSHH training a legal requirement?

The HSE state that employers must provide training, information and instruction for employees who work with substances hazardous to health. This is the final step in the eight basic measures that should be taken to comply with COSHH regulations. If employees don't know what substances are hazardous, or how to use them, then control measures put in place won't be effective. 

Our COSHH training course ensures your employees are properly informed and trained in COSHH, including why it's important, COSHH assessments, COSHH legislation and the types of hazardous substances.

What are the 8 steps of COSHH? The 8 steps of COSHH are:
  1. COSHH Risk Assessment - identify the hazardous substances present in your workplace and consider the risks to people's health.
  2. Decide what the precautions are and how to prevent harm to health.
  3. Prevention or adequately control exposure.
  4. Ensuring the control measures are used and maintained properly.
  5. Monitor the exposure of employees to hazardous substances.
  6. Carry out appropriate health surveillance where your COSHH assessment has shown this is necessary.
  7. Prepare plans and procedures for emergencies.
  8. Last but not least, ensure all employees are properly informed, trained and supervised.
These all help prevent or reduce employee's exposure to hazardous substances. Our COSHH training course will provide your staff with the suitable and sufficient information and training needed.
What are the COSHH symbols? COSHH symbols tell you about the type of hazard a substance presents and may be classified as one or more of the following types:
  1. Explosives
  2. Flammable
  3. Oxidising
  4. Gas under pressure
  5. Corrosive
  6. Toxic
  7. Health hazards
  8. Serious health hazards
  9. Dangerous for the environment
How often do you need COSHH training?

How often you need COSHH training varies from one business to another, there is no legal time limit on COSHH certificates.

However, based on industry guidelines, it's best to refresh your knowledge yearly.
