As an integral part of day-to-day activities, it is not uncommon for most organisations to use substances that are marked as hazardous. Substances that are hazardous to health are defined under the COSHH regulations as those that are very toxic, toxic, corrosive, harmful or irritant and include all substances that are allocated a Workplace Exposure Limit (WEL), certain biological agents connected with work and substantial volumes of dust.

The training workshop will cover the following key attributes and control measures:

  • COSHH regulations: an overview of the regulations and how to apply them
  • effective control, management of use of hazardous substances
  • correctly identifying hazardous substances and understanding their effects
  • safe storage of hazardous substances
  • mandatory information and signage
  • safety data sheet: what they cover and why
  • COSHH risks assessments - management, control and removal of hazardous (and non-hazardous) waste

This course is recommended for health and safety coordinators and equivalent roles involved in the risk assessment process as well as technical staff and post-graduate students involved in applicable health and safety activities.


This course will provide straight forward guidance on understanding the COSHH regulations, including understanding the scope and content of safety data sheets, carrying out COSHH risk assessments and dealing with hazardous waste.
