The Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 2002are designed to protect people against risks to their health arising from exposure to hazardous substances during their working activities.
Unfortunately, the end user sometimes has no control over what they are given to complete a task.
A typical example would be where an employee has run out of paint, requests paint from the buyer, who manages to source paint at a cheaper price. All well and good until the operative is given the different product containing harmful substances and is now completely unaware of the danger.
The first clue is when operatives are off sick with respiratory or skin problems. It is therefore imperative that buyers understand the implications of their decisions especially with regard to harmful substances.
This one day course ensures that buyers are aware of their legal obligations under The Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974,COSHH 2002 and other current legislation.
