Course Description

Learn about COSHH, exposure to hazardous substances, types, classification and controls.

Hazardous substances are present in nearly all workplaces, and can affect anyone, not just those who regularly handle hazardous substances.

Workers should be trained so that they can recognise hazardous substances and know what to do if they come across them.

This COSHH Awareness elearning training course has been developed to provide those working with or around hazardous substances, with an understanding of the types of hazardous substances that they may come into contact with, the potential health hazards and the controls required to reduce risk.

This online course helps employers and employees understand the risks associated when working with or around substances which are hazardous to health.

This COSHH Awareness online training course contains a variety of text based content, along with image, video, quiz, and other content as necessary to assist your learning.

The COSHH Awareness training course has been developed to be easy to understand and simple to navigate.

On completion of the course you will be assessed with a multiple choice test. Once you have passed the assessment you will be able to download your certificate for your records. The certificate is supplied in PDF format.

You can proceed through the COSHH Awareness course at your own pace, and repeat the content as many times as you wish until you feel ready for the final assessment.
