Essential COSHH Awareness. This course assists in complying with the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health 2002 (COSHH)Regulation.  It aims to provide the trainee with an understanding of these regulations in many of the critical risk areas.

This short, entry-level course advises on procedures of the risks and dangers involved with any substance which could be:  a single chemical; a naturally occurring material such as wood dust or flour; mixtures and compounds such as paint, solvents, detergents and cleaning materials, metal-working fluids, pesticides, adhesives and cosmetics. It also includes all the dusts, fumes and vapours arising during work such as diesel exhaust fumes, silica dust and combustion products.

Almost everyone will benefit from this dynamic course as it reviews the COSHH Regulations and how they protect people at work.

This is COSHH training and no-one wins if the trainee isn’t concentrating. Shout Out Safety courses are entertaining exactly because we’re serious about Health & Safety training. Learning is easier when people are engaged (and they engage much more when they’re entertained).
