The importance of the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) Regulations cannot be overlooked, nor the importance of an employee holding a COSHH qualification. For instance, thousands of individuals are made ill each year as a direct result of substances that are hazardous to health.

Sectors where employees may be required to conduct COSHH training include manufacturing, cleaning, healthcare, transport and utilities. Highfield offers a regulated qualification that learners can achieve after undertaking COSHH training, which provides them with the knowledge and skills to be able to recognise the risks associated with hazardous substances and how to control them.

Learners achieving this qualification will understand the law relating to hazardous substances in the workplace, how risk assessments contribute to the safe use of hazardous substances, and the precautions and procedures necessary to ensure that risks are properly controlled.

These include the law relating to hazardous substances in the workplace, how risk assessments contribute to the safe use of hazardous substances in the workplace and  the precautions and procedures necessary to ensure that risks associated with hazardous substances are properly controlled.
