What’s the course about?

COSHH – Control of Substances Hazardous to Health

It is a legal requirement for employers to provide information, instruction and training about the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 2002 as amended).

COSHH is the law that requires employers to control substances that are hazardous to health. The Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) regulations have been in place for more than 25 years, and the scientific evidence suggests that over this time industry has, in general, been consistently reducing exposure to hazardous substances.

In this COSHH e-learning course your learners will gain the knowledge and understanding required to ensure they can act safely when working around hazardous substances. It provides a clear overview of the important elements of hazardous substances and gives learners all the information to help ensure the safety of themselves or anyone else who works with hazardous substances.

The e-learning course is interactive and engaging with elements of ‘storytelling’ that help make the learning easy and interesting to follow. It’s a fun way of learning the important principles of COSHH.
