Substances that are hazardous to our health have been around for as long as mankind itself and many substances can cause risks to your health and safety if you don't handle them properly. So aside from the obvious things like bleach or acid, you need to be careful of all the substances that COSHH covers. In this section of our COSHH awareness training, we cover a variety of hazardous substances, how to handle them and the effects of exposure.

A group of warning signs for COSHH training

There’s a system, known as the Globally Harmonized System, that’s been adopted worldwide for each country to base their own legislation on. This system requires manufacturers of all chemicals in every country to provide information about the health risks the substances pose, so regardless of language, we all have the same understanding of the hazards. After completing this section you'll have a solid understanding of all of the COSHH Hazard Symbols.

This section takes a look at the various ways that your organisation can reduce and control the risks to your health and safety (including a COSHH risk assessment); and what you need to do if there’s an accident or emergency - this can be done by following our 6 Simple Steps.

About this course

The HSE state that all employers must provide information,trainingand instruction to all staff who work with hazardous substances. This also includes cleaning staff and maintenance staff.

It is estimated that hazardous substances account for around650,000 deaths every year, making it one of the biggest contributors to occupational deaths worldwide.By providing effective COSHH training online, employers can help to ensure that everyone in the workplace is competent to carry out their work safely.

Our online COSHH training course identifies hazardous substances, how they can be harmful, everyday storage,COSHH Risk Assessmentsand what they are used for.

All levels of staff and management should be able to:

  • recognise the potential hazards posed by their work
  • be able to take action to reduce or eliminate the risks with suitable control measures against COSHH
  • understand the role of personal protection in ensuring good occupational health

Equip your staff with the knowledge needed to safely store hazardous chemicals and how to respond if they are exposed to hazardous chemicals; as well as giving them a solid understanding of the hazard symbols and the '6 simple steps'.
