18 Oct COSHH Training for Cleaners and Housekeepers
We don’t give cleaning chemicals a second thought. It is easy to forget that chemicals are an important tool cleaners use for virtually all day-to-day and deep cleaning activities. Even if they have been purchased from a supermarket, which many assume are safe, these chemicals must be handled and used safely in line with legal requirements.
Many people think that finding ‘safe’ alternatives like vinegar is the answer, it’s not, it’s just one option. It’s not just the type, strength and concentration of the chemicals and substances used but includes how they are used that dictates the overall risk.
COSHH (Control of Substances Hazardous to Health) is a UK legal requirement for all employees working with substances hazardous to health, but the standards, and the principles are recognised and adopted internationally.
What we offer you
There are many generic COSHH training courses which cover the understanding of a hazardous standard, assessing the risk of those hazardous substances, reducing risks and controlling exposure, but understanding the principles and applying them to cleaning activities are two different matters.
We offer two practical and completely cleaning-based COSHH training courses, one for supervisors and managers and the other one for cleaners. Supervisors and managers are required to assess the risk of the cleaning chemicals and put into place safe systems of work. Cleaners are required to understand the risks the chemicals pose to themselves and others and know how to safely use them.
