Your workforce and others who might be affected by what your organisation does can be exposed to hazardous substances (e.g. chemicals, fumes, dust and fibres). While many of these substances will be easy to deal with, some will pose a significant health risk. But do you know which is which? Even more importantly, do you know how to properly assess the risks? ‘CoSHH Assessment’ will show you how.
The HSE estimates that 13000 people die of occupational ill-health conditions each year in the UK alone (yes, you did read that right). Many of these deaths will be caused by exposure to hazardous substances. In addition, there will be tens of thousands of other cases of ill-health, some of which will lead to really serious long-term suffering. Because of this, you must carry out a proper CoSHH Assessment. But do you know how? This course gives you the tools you need to make sure that your workers don’t add to these statistics.
The law requires employers to assess the risks from exposure to hazardous substances. The results of the risk assessment will help you to decide whether further action will be needed and, if so, what action to take. Not only will this help to ensure the long term health of your workforce and others, but it will save you money in the form of unnecessary controls, lost time, sick pay, prosecution fines and costs associated with compensation claims from those who have been made ill.
Our ‘CoSHH Assessment’ training will give your staff the knowledge they need to help them to carry out a proper assessment.
