Do you work with or around potentially dangerous or hazardous substances?
The Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 2002 (amended 2004), more widely known as the COSHH Regulations, were made under the provision of the Health and Safety at Work Etc. Act 1974. Like the Act, the Regulations stipulate that working safely with hazardous substances is the responsibility of everyone; from the substance supplier to the employer and the end user.
Cleaners, hairdressers, welders, bakery workers, garage workers, healthcare staff, to name a few occupations, are all at danger to be exposed to dangerous substances. If you are at work and work with potentially harmful substances then this course applies to you.
