This COSHH Awareness Course course is designed to raise awareness of the hazards associated with working with hazardous substances in the construction environment, and the practical steps that can be taken to avoid and minimise the risks they present.

UK HSE:
COSHH is the law that requires employers to control substances that are hazardous to health. You can prevent or reduce workers exposure to hazardous substances by:

  • Finding out what the health hazards are
  • Deciding how to prevent harm to health (risk assessment)
  • Providing control measures to reduce harm to health
  • Making sure they are used
  • Keeping all control measures in good working order
  • Providing information, instruction and training for employees and others
  • Providing monitoring and health surveillance in appropriate cases
  • Planning for emergencies

Most businesses use substances, or products that are mixtures of substances. Some processes create substances. These could cause harm to employees, contractors and other people.

Sometimes substances are easily recognised as harmful. Common substances such as paint, bleach or dust from natural materials may also be harmful.

UK HSE:
Think about:

  • What do you do that involves hazardous substances?
  • How can these cause harm?
  • How can you reduce the risk of harm occurring?

Always try to prevent exposure at source. For example:

  • Can you avoid using a hazardous substance or use a safer process – preventing exposure, e.g. using water-based rather than solvent-based products, applying by brush rather than spraying?
  • Can you substitute it for something safer – e.g. swap an irritant cleaning product for something milder, or using a vacuum cleaner rather than a brush?
  • Can you use a safer form, e.g. can you use a solid rather than liquid to avoid splashes or a waxy solid instead of a dry powder to avoid dust?

Everyone involved in construction activities has a legal responsibility to manage hazards and the requirements of COSHH regulations.

This training is designed for:

  • Site Managers
  • Site operatives
  • Health and safety officers
  • Anyone who may have the requirement to handle or manage hazardous substances
