The EssentialSkillz COSHH (Hazardous Substances) online training supports the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations (COSHH) 2002 and the associated Approved Code of Practice and guidance, L5 (2013). Regulation 12 requires employees to be provided with suitable and sufficient information, instruction and training.
The COSHH online training includes a lesson on how to interpret information provided with hazardous substances (for example, labelling on bottles, or statements on safety data sheets), and must be supplemented with local information about the specific substances to which employees might be exposed.
Lesson 3 explains the ways in which hazardous substances can enter the body, and describes three common health conditions that can develop as a result (dermatitis, asthma and cancer).
The final lesson of this online COSHH training describes some of the control measures that might be in place to manage hazardous substances, following the hierarchy of control. The emphasis is that hazards should first be eliminated, with personal protective equipment (PPE) a last resort where the residual risk cannot be reduced sufficiently. This information will help the learner to interpret and apply locally produced risk assessments in relation to hazardous substances.
