This training course was designed with all levels of employees in mind and covers all the information necessary to keep the user and their colleagues safe from substances that may be potentially harmful to their health.
Seeing as hazardous substances account for around 650,000 deaths every year, it is crucial that any employee who works with chemicals (even household chemicals like bleach) understand their responsibilities under COSHH Regulations and how to reduce the chances of an incident occurring.
In this course you will learn:
- The details of Control of Substances Hazardous to Health, including the types of hazard you may encounter.
- To identify hazard symbols and what they mean.
- The six steps for controlling health and safety risks relating to hazardous substances.
This course consists of three sections:
Section 1: hazardous substances, coming into contact with them and the effects of exposure
Section 1 examines many of the harmful substances covered by COSHH, the risks they pose upon exposure, and how to handle them safely.
Section 2: hazard symbols
Section 2 looks at the Globally Harmonised System that is used globally to alert people to hazards. The system involves a synchronised set of hazard symbols that you will learn for hazard identification, and requires all manufacturers of chemicals to appropriately label all hazardous substances to its agreed standards.
Section 3: 6 simple steps
Section 3 details the six steps you should take in the event of an accident or emergency relating to hazardous substances. This section also includes ways you and your organisation can minimise the risks of hazardous substances to a safe level.
