Our Hazardous Substances Courses

Our Hazardous Substances courses are available as part of the Health and Safety eLearning Suite in one great package.

Hazardous Substances (COSHH) Training

The COSHH training course is designed to educate employees about the dangers of hazardous substances, how to handle them, and how to deal with any spillages safely. Split into three modules, the course guides learners through the physical and environmental hazards posed by dangerous substances, what hazardous substance symbols mean, and what control measures can be put in place to prevent damage to property or health.

It is your employer's responsibility to undertake the risk assessment (or appoint a professional to do so), and you'll find information about what to consider when carrying-out a COSHH risk assessment in our Hazardous Substances in the workplace eLearning course.

Our hazardous substances training course is available off-the-shelf for ease of use; we can also work with your subject experts to tailor the approach and information to suit your organisation's requirements. Using the Adapt Authoring Tool you can even modify our courses yourself.

What is COSHH training?

Hazardous substances can cause short or long-term health problems, and that's why The Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) regulations were passed in 2002. Under the COSHH regulations, employers need to manage their workers' exposure to dangerous substances to reduce the risk of harm. In the workplace, hazardous substances may take many forms; meaning that solids, liquids, gases, and fumes can all be classed as hazardous substances if they fit the definition. Under COSHH, substances are classified according to their risks, i.e. toxic, very toxic, corrosive, harmful, or irritant.

Who needs COSHH training?

Anyone whose working environment involves hazardous substances is at risk, so the aim of COSHH training, where exposure to hazardous substances cannot be prevented, is to have appropriate control measures for the hazards and prevent accidents from happening. All risks associated with hazardous substances in the workplace must be assessed thoroughly.
