Hazardous substances such as acids, bleaches etc. can affect anyone within the workplace, not just those who handle them during the course of their work. There’s plenty to consider and in this course we cover exactly what you need to keep your environment safe and your staff happy.
Under the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) Regulations it states that ‘every employer who undertakes work which is liable to expose an employee to a substance hazardous to health shall provide that employee with suitable and sufficient information, instruction and training.’ Employees also have a legal responsibility to co-operate fully with their employer in order to enable them to meet their legal obligations.
So, by having effective COSHH training, employers can now be assured that everyone in the workplace is competent to carry out their work safely. The managers, supervisors and other members of staff should be able to recognise the hazards and be able to take action to reduce or eliminate the risks and understand how to follow the procedures.
