COSHH Assessment Workshop

Each year up to 12,000 people suffer severe health complications such as lung disease, asthma, skin diseases and even cancer from contact with hazardous substances. Such occurrences can also have a great financial impact on an employer, alongside legal implications. The Control Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations (COSHH) requires that an employer will not allow its workers to become exposed to hazardous materials unless a proper assessment has been made of the risk to health.

A COSHH assessment workshop course covers what is required to carry out a thorough and regulation-meeting COSHH assessment. The course is suitable for safety managers, safety representatives or any other person that has a responsibility for hazardous substances and their by-products within a company. A typical COSHH assessment course should cover:

  • Relevant legislation in the handling and treatment of hazardous chemicals
  • Managing chemicals
  • Relevant industry terms and classifications and what they mean
  • COSHH assessment processes
  • Safety data sheets
  • Control of hazardous materials, including prevention and maintenance
  • Monitoring hazardous substances
  • A practical assessment

Phoenix Safety Services offers COSHH Assessment Workshop courses all over the UK including London, Birmingham, Leeds, Glasgow, Sheffield, Bradford, Liverpool, Edinburgh, Manchester, Bristol, Wirral, Wakefield, Cardiff, Dudley, Wigan, Coventry, Belfast, Leicester, Sunderland, Doncaster, Stockport and many more locations.

Our COSHH assessment workshop gives delegates an understanding of the dangers of hazardous substances in the workplace, along with an understanding of relevant legislation. They will learn practical skills and develop a knowledge base that enables them to carry out a COSHH evaluation while assessing and controlling risks. Our workshop covers:

  • Thorough understanding of COSHH assessment, legislation and regulations
  • An understanding of EH40 and occupational exposure limits
  • Physiology and how hazardous chemicals affect the body
  • Safety data sheets
  • Hierarchy of control measures
  • Monitoring and health surveillance

Upon successful completion of the course, delegates will receive a Phoenix Safety Certificate.
