- Concise staff training on COSHH
- Lower the accident rate at your workplace through education
- Update your staff on the latest regulations
The Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) Regulations were brought in to deal with the treatment of hazardous substances in the workplace and to ensure employee health and safety while at work.
Depending on your industry, you may need to use corrosive chemicals; flammable substances; materials that can cause skin irritation; or even plain old flour, which in high in enough atmospheric concentrations can actually be explosive.
With the short COSHH DVD, you can easily educate your staff, and perhaps site visitors if needed, on the dangers of handling hazardous chemicals, storage, how to deal with spills, safety equipment needed, personal protective equipment and what to do if there is an accident.
If there is an accident onsite, you will need to record the incident in a health and safety accident book.
It is a legal requirement to either display the health and safety law poster in the workplace, or give your employees a copy of the HSE health and safety law leaflet. During the staff induction or as part of the COSHH training is a perfect time to do it.
Encourage discussion of the points raised on the DVD, and look at your procedures together with your staff to make improvements. Making everyone feel involved and listened to is the best way to keep up health and safety standards in any business.
