The Importance of Hazardous Substances Training
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.
Employees taking our Hazardous Substances training courses will be well-equipped to understand hazardous substances and how to handle them safely, making health and safety issues less likely to arise. Learners will enjoy a grounding in where to find the relevant information on each hazardous substance, the meaning of hazardous substance symbols and what to do if a spillage occurs.
