Under the Health and Safety At Work Act Act 1974 the importance of the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) Regulations cannot be overlooked, nor the importance of an employee holding a COSHH qualification. For instance, thousands of individuals are made ill each year as a direct result of substances that are hazardous to health.
Sectors where employees may be required to conduct COSHH training may include manufacturing, cleaning, healthcare, transport and utilities.
Mimas offers this regulated Level 2 qualification that learners can achieve after undertaking COSHH training, which provides them with the knowledge and skills to be able to recognise the risks associated with hazardous substances and how to control them safely in their work place.
Learners achieving this qualification will understand the law relating to hazardous substances in the workplace, how risk assessments contribute to the safe use of hazardous substances, and the precautions and procedures necessary to ensure that risks are properly controlled.
THIS QUALIFICATION IS USUALLY ACHIEVED BY TAKING A HALF-DAY COURSE
The course is assessed through a 30-minute, 15-question, multiple-choice examination. Learners must achieve a score of at least 10 out of 15 in order to pass.
