Control of Hazardous Substance

IIRSM Approved

Course Description

This course covers what you need to know about the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH). It’s aimed at anyone who is exposed to Substances Hazardous to Health at work, as wellas line managers with responsibility for such people.

So what do we mean by ‘Substances Hazardous to Health’?

In legal terms, these are substances that are classified as “very toxic, toxic, harmful, corrosive or Irritant” under the Classification, Labelling and Packaging Regulation (CLP). 

This was a new regulation that came into force in January 2009 dovetailing with a set of regulations called REACH. REACH is a European Union regulation concerning the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation, and Restriction of Chemicals, which came into force on 1st June 2007. 

One of the main aims of REACH is to provide a high level of protection for human health and the environment from the use of chemicals.

Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 2002?

Under the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) Regulations 2002, regulation 12 states that ‘every employer who undertakes work which is liable to expose an employee to a substance hazardous to health shall provide that employee with suitable and sufficient information, instruction and training.’ Employees also have a legal responsibility to co-operate fully with their employer in order to enable them to meet their legal obligations.

By providing effective COSHH training, employers can help to ensure that everyone in the workplace is competent to carry out their work safely. Managers, supervisors, and other members of staff should be able to recognise the hazards posed by their work, be able to take action to reduce or eliminate the risks, and understand how to follow procedures.
