The assessment is a procedure that considers the risk to the health of employees created by that work and of the mitigation steps that need to be taken to meet the requirements of COSHH.
The aim of the COSHH Assessment course is to inform you of the regulatory requirements and how to put them into a practical context in your own workplace.
It provides guidance on the process of making a ‘suitable and sufficient’ assessment of the risks posed by work involving substance hazardous to health.
The COSHH Assessment course is for anyone who is or will be involved in working with hazardous substances and needs to understand how to make a COSHH assessment (e.g. safety, health and environment managers; laboratory practitioners; and other users or handlers of chemicals).
Running this course at your premises could make a significant difference because it does not just focus on the detail of the regulatory requirements. The classroom sessions can focus on the substances you handle and their associated hazards and risks. Once delegates understand these, we turn to the assessment process and consider your current system and alternatives. We then offer the option of a workplace practical; where the tutor goes into your working environment so that, with guidance, the delegates have the chance to make a real assessment for themselves.

COSHH Assessment - a one-day course, including a practical element, for a small group.
“The in house training provided by NCEC was sufficiently detailed and pitched at an appropriate level for our science staff. The practical session was particularly useful for our staff to practice their new skills.”
