Employers are legally responsible to undertake the risk assessment or contract a professional to carry out a COSHH risk assessment in their workplace. A thorough set of guidelines to consider when completing a COSHH risk assessment is included in our COSHH training online programme.

What is COSHH training?

The Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) regulations was passed in 2002 due to the short and long-term health problems that exposure to hazardous substances can cause. COSHH regulations require employers to manage their workers' exposure to dangerous substances to reduce the risk of harm.

Hazardous substances can take the form of solids, liquids, gases and fumes within the workplace. Under COSHH, substances are classified according to their risk as toxic, very toxic, corrosive, harmful, or irritant.

Who needs COSHH training?

Organisations whose working environments involves hazardous substances are at risk. All hazardous substances in the workplace must be carefully assessed for their potential risks to employees. The aim of our online COSHH training programme is to ensure organisations have appropriate control measures where exposure to hazardous substances cannot be prevented. The main objective of DeltaNet's COSHH online training programme is to prevent, potentially fatal, accidents from occurring.
