Why should you take this COSHH training course?
Having sufficient knowledge of COSHH regulations is essential for any business that handles hazardous materials that could potentially cause harm to employees or the public. Taking a COSHH training course is the most effective way to ensure that your business remains compliant with this important legislation.
By completing the COSHH awareness training, you will gain a comprehensive understanding of COSHH regulations and the best methods for handling and storing dangerous substances safely. Furthermore, it will enable you to develop safe working procedures that comply with the requirements of the legislation and help protect your workforce from harm. For these reasons, it is essential that you consider taking a COSHH training course as soon as possible.
Is COSHH training mandatory?
Yes, in the UK COSHH (Control of Substances Hazardous to Health) training is mandatory to comply with the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 2002 (COSHH) and needs to be provided to all employees who interact with substances that are hazardous to health in their day-to-day work.
This training is vital to ensure that all workers know how to practice safe working and help protect themselves, their colleagues and other people that may be exposed to hazardous substances.
Training should be provided in the correct use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and decontamination procedures if required. It is important that companies make sure that workers fully understand their responsibilities when it comes to handling any form of hazardous substances and COSHH training is the best way to achieve this.
While COSHH training is not a legal requirement in itself, complying with the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 2002 (COSHH) is mandatory for employers. As an employee, it is crucial to receive adequate training to fulfill your legal duty to protect your health and the health of others. By obtaining a COSHH training certificate, you demonstrate your commitment to workplace safety and compliance with relevant regulations.

How long does a COSHH training certificate last?
The duration for which a COSHH training certificate lasts tends to vary from employer to employer. Generally, it is recommended that refresher COSHH training should be taken every three years.
This is to ensure that employees stay up to date with all relevant regulations and understand what they need to do in an emergency. How often COSHH training should be taken depends on the layout of your workplace and the substances used there, which can change over time, so it pays to stay trained and to keep a record of your training certificates. So although a COSHH training certificate does not have a set expiry date, it’s important to have a ‘refresher’ every few years to ensure that employees are up to date with all of their COSHH training.
