Many people tasked with COSHH assessments are unsure what is
required or where to get information.  Once the initial

course aims to give that knowledge and those skills.

Day one covers assessing exposure and risk and includes case
studies and the chance to work through examples.  Day two
moves on to implementing exposure controls that are effective and
reliable, and includes practical demonstrations.  The focus
for both days is on practicality and effectiveness.

  • Hazardous substances and risks from over exposure
  • COSHH regulations and what they mean in practice
  • Guidance and finding information
  • Assessments and action plans
  • Adequate control, understanding limits, the principles of good

  • Hierarchy of control and reliability
  • Reducing exposure by process change and substitution
  • Choosing and using effective LEV
  • Choosing and using RPE
  • Skin and ingestion exposure
  • Choosing and using PPE


The course will benefit anyone tasked with completing COSHH
assessments and/or implementing controls, whether for the first
time or to improve skills.  This will typically include
managers and supervisors and safety officers.  Health and
safety professionals looking to refresh or update their skills may
