The Principles of CoSHH course is a stand-alone level 2 qualification fully accredited and is designed to complement the General Health and Safety programme. It is aimed at those who use substances hazardous to health and introduces students to the hazards associated with those substances, the risks and controls available in order to use these substances safely in a works environment.

Course Description

Everything you want to know about our course

Successful completion will prepare students to look carefully at their own work activities and contribute to the safer use of hazardous substances in co-operation with their managers and supervisors. While this unit of study can be delivered as a stand-alone qualification and there are no specific pre-requisites, it is strongly recommended that students should already hold the Level 2 Certificate in Health and Safety in the Workplace.

This course can also be delivered as a non accredited session which eliminates the need for an examination and therefore reduces the overall price.

If a second course were to be booked for the same day at the same location then the second course would be half price.
