Many businesses use hazardous substances as part of the process of manufacture, whilst
some produce such substances as a result of those processes.
By definition, such substances can cause harm to employees, contractors and other people.

Topics

The Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 2002 (COSHH) create the
general requirements for employers to protect employees and other persons from the
hazards created by hazardous substances used in the workplace through the use of risk
assessment, control of exposure, health surveillance and incident planning.
This course provides an awareness of the essential COSHH requirements for those working
with, or potentially affected by, hazardous substances.
