COSHH Training - Practical Assessment and Control

19 January 2022 - 21 January 2022

Introduction

This two day course (delivered over 3 sessions) gives detailed and practical training on carrying out COSHH assessments and, crucially, putting the assessment into practice to control substances hazardous to health.

Many people tasked with COSHH assessments are unsure what is required or where to get information.  Once the initial assessment is complete, they are often uncertain on how to approach control, and how to judge when control is adequate.  This course aims to give that knowledge and those skills.

Day one covers assessing exposure and risk and includes case studies and the chance to work through examples.  Day two moves on to implementing exposure controls that are effective and reliable, and includes practical demonstrations.  The focus for both days is on practicality and effectiveness.

The course will cover:

CPD Certified

  • Hazardous substances and risks from over exposure
  • COSHH regulations and what they mean in practice
  • Guidance and finding information
  • Assessments and action plans
  • Adequate control, understanding limits, the principles of good control practice
  • Hierarchy of control and reliability
  • Reducing exposure by process change and substitution
  • Choosing and using effective LEV
  • Choosing and using RPE
  • Skin and ingestion exposure
  • Choosing and using PPE

Who should attend?

The course will benefit anyone tasked with completing COSHH assessments and/or implementing controls, whether for the first time or to improve skills.  This will typically include managers and supervisors and safety officers.  Health and safety professionals looking to refresh or update their skills may also benefit but please note that the course assumes no prior knowledge and therefore includes basic concepts and information.
