COSHH Training - Practical Assessment and Control - (Training in London)

HSL is to run a 2 day course on COSHH Training - Practical Assessment and Control - (Training in London).

Please email your expression of interest

PLEASE NOTE THE COURSE WILL BE HELD IN LONDON

Introduction

This two day course 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.

Course includes

  • Hazardous substances and risks from over exposureCPD Certified
  • 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 RPE
  • Skin and ingestion exposure
  • Choosing and using PPE

 

Who should attend?
