‘I found the COSHH course surprisingly informative and engaging, split into bite sized chunks it didn’t feel like it dragged on and on. The test section of 20 questions also meant that you actually need to listen and read all sections rather than skip pages and hope for the best at the end’.

You will learn where to find the information about the risks of any hazardous substance and how to use, store, dispose of and transport chemicals and hazardous substances safely.
Recording any incident with a chemical or hazardous substance, however small, is vital to help everyone learn to improve safety. Likewise, health hazards should be reported as soon as you notice them.
