COSHH Assessors' Course


This  informative and practical one-day training course covers how to carry out COSHH assessments. Most businesses use substances that could potentially cause harm to employees, contractors and cother people. The course assumes no prior knowledge and begins with an introduction to the health risks from substances in the workplace and the overall requirements of the COSHH Regulations.

The aim is for delegates to have a thorough understanding of the requirements for assessment and the competence to carry them out effectively.

By the end of the training course, you will have an understanding of:

  • Hazardous substances and risks from over-exposure
  • exposure by inhalation, skin and ingestion
  • COSHH regulations and what they mean in practice
  • Guidance and finding information
  • Carrying out effective assessments and action plans
  • The basics of control measures

Who should attend?

The course will benefit anyone tasked with completing COSHH assessments on a day-to-day basis whether for the first time or to improve skills.

Note: Mannagers and supervisors who have responsibility for specifying control measures should attend our 2-day course which provides in-depth information on control measures.


The course will be run at the HSE Science and Research Centre in the spa town of Buxton. Buxton is in the heart of the Peak District and has good links to mainline train stations and Manchester International Airport.
