Course Content

What is COSHH training?

The Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) Regulations 2002 oblige employers to ensure the safety of workers when using any substances that may harm their wellbeing.

As part of their responsibility under the COSHH regulations, organisations must be sure to provide suitable training relating to the control of such substances, which can range from everyday cleaning products to the most hazardous airborne contaminants.

The Phoenix Health and Safety COSHH Awareness e-learning course enables employers to meet this legal obligation in the most flexible, convenient and cost-effective manner. The course is studied and assessed online, taking just 30 minutes to complete. 

Who should take COSHH training?

The COSHH online course is a general awareness course. It is suitable for all individuals who may be exposed to hazardous substances, and for those supervising them. It is applicable across a range of industries, including catering, beauty, hairdressing, engineering, vehicle repair, cleaning and maintenance.

Workers who take the course will:

  • Gain a better understanding of health and safety risks
  • Learn to identify the different hazard symbols
  • Understand the different types of hazardous substances and the ill-effects they can cause
