COSHH AWARENESS – OVERVIEW
This COSHH Awareness course is designed for staff who may deal with chemicals or substances hazardous to health in the course of their normal daily duties. It is particularly useful to staff working in the care environment.
Due to the immense difficulties encountered in meeting statutory obligations to ensure staff are aware of measures to be taken when working with chemicals or substances hazardous to health, this course has been prepared to ensure that staff are fully up to date with regard to their statutory COSHH responsibilities.
The COSHH Awareness course is one of our half day courses, run over three and a half hours.
The COSHH syllabus includes, but is not limited to the following:
- COSHH – the legal points, including relevant legislation
- Obligations of staff and employers in the workplace with regard to COSHH
- Consequences of poor chemicals and substances controls.
- Working safely with chemicals and substances.
- Identifying problems with chemicals and substances in the home environment.
Assessment and Certification
Assessment is ongoing by the instructor throughout the course with a course questionnaire, which when successfully completed will result in learners being issued with a certificate COSHH Awareness, valid for 1 year from the date of the course. After 1 year, learners will need to repeat the course to be recertified
A maximum of 12 people are catered for at any one time, ensuring a low student to trainer ratio on this course allowing us to devote more time to each learner.
We are able to deliver this course on your site, subject to a pre-course assessment of your premises, reducing your costs in respect of additional time out and travelling, or at a venue convenient to you.
