Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH)

This online course covers everything you need to know about Control of Substances Hazardous to Health. It should be undertaken by employees who are exposed to Substances Hazardous to Health and line managers who supervise them.

Control of Substances Hazardous to Health

COSHH Is the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health, and it is a business owner’s responsibility to manage potential health and safety risks facing their employees. Preventing or reducing worker exposure can be accomplished by:

  • Identifying health hazards
  • Determining how to prevent harm to health
  • Developing control measures to reduce harm to health
  • Make sure they are in good working order
  • Providing employees and others with information, instruction and training

Almost every business uses substances hazardous to health or products containing these substances. Some substances are readily recognisable as harmful; however, paints, bleach, and dust from natural materials are also considered harmful.
