CoSHH is the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health. In this awareness course, we cover the legalities, the details contained in CoSHH assessments as well as Manufacturer’s Safety Data Sheets (MSDS).

The Hazards

We discuss the routes of entry and how the chemicals can affect your workers. We demonstrate the hazards symbols and their meanings as well as not all harmful elements have a symbol.

Controlling the Risk

Before we choose to use PPE, we need persons to understand the hierarchy of control and where PPE is not always the best option. We also discuss the first aid measures if a person is affected.

Course Delivery

Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (CoSHH) awareness can be delivered face to face or via Zoom/Teams. We feel that delegates get a far better experience when the course is delivered in person, however, we appreciate this is not always possible so we work around you and your needs.

We can tailor the content to include your business and your operating practices, along with any key messages that you need your workers to understand such as your policy, procedures, and working practices. The primary elements of the course include:

Understanding the risk.

Identifying the hazards.

Applying the Hierarchy of Risk Control.

The possible viruses, diseases, and how they can affect a person.

Protecting yourself and others.
