Course Description

Substances that are hazardous to health are encountered surprisingly frequently in everyday life. In the workplace, such substances are often stored in larger volumes or greater strengths and so it is vitally important that staff are aware of the potential dangers of such materials. Delegates attending this course will gain a solid understanding of the principles of COSHH.

The law requires employers to control exposure to substances that can be hazardous to prevent ill health.
