COSHH Classroom Courses

A training course tutor

COSHH risks to health are not just limited to specific industries. Although some, by the very nature of their work, may have more dangerous chemicals and hazardous substances on the premises than other companies, COSHH dangers are likely to be present in all workplaces to some extent.

Whilst our online COSHH course is very good, where health and safety training is involved it is always far better to have an actual course tutor there with you in the room, and is why we would always recommend that you attend a classroom COSHH training course whenever time and budgets allow.

We currently offer two COSHH classroom courses which are often scheduled as open courses, but also form a basis upon which we can design a bespoke COSHH training course for you and your employees.



COSHH Awareness Training

  • Half Day Course

The COSHH Awareness course is a half day course aimed at people who deal with hazardous substances on a day to day basis. Delegates will be briefed on the importance of procedures, safe handling and risk assessment of hazardous substances within their organisation.

At the conclusion of the course, delegates will have a sound understanding of their personal and legal responsibilities for the control of chemical and hazardous substances.

The syllabus of the COSHH Awareness course covers relevant issues such as:

  • COSHH regulations and principles
  • Undertaking a suitable COSHH risk assessment and identifying controls
  • The need for safe use and storage of hazardous substances (including PPE)
  • Preparing and maintaining records (including Material Safety Data Sheets)

Permit to Work Training Course

A permit to work system ensures that formal validation and authority is given when hazardous work is to be undertaken. It ensures that all components of a safe system of work are established before high risk work commences, thereby controlling and reducing risk to individuals and the organisation. The permit to work is also a means of communication and control between site managers, supervisors, contractors and those carrying out the hazardous work.

This health and safety training course can be tailored to include details of your company-specific permit to work system.
