Overview

Every year, thousands of workers are made ill by hazardous substances, contracting lung disease such as asthma, cancer and skin disease such as dermatitis. The Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 2002 (COSHH) were established, and amended in 2005, to help employers protect both employees and others who may be at risk at work due to exposure to chemicals or other hazardous substances.

As a result, this course has been developed to provide you with an introduction to what employers need to do order to meet their duties under the COSHH Regulations 2002. On completion, learners will have an increased understanding of the positive impact of COSHH, the effects of hazardous substances and the methods to adopt to comply with the regulations.
