E-Learning Working with Hazardous Substances
The course is divided into three interactive modules:
Module 1 – What are hazardous substances? Learners will explore what is meant by a hazardous substance and will discover how they can get into the body and how they can cause harm. Learners will see a range of practical examples of typical workplace activities where hazardous substances are used or generated.
Module 2 – Where are they found? This module focusses on COSHH risk assessment and the risk factors that should be considered. Learners will also be introduced to Material Safety Data sheets as a key source of information when assessing risk.
Module 3 – How can I protect myself? In this module learners will consider how risks from hazardous substances can be controlled and managed. They will consider a range of strategies including the use of personal protection. Within this module learners will test their knowledge by taking a virtual tour of a factory and considering the various risks and controls as they go.
Completion of the training programme will unlock a ten question knowledge checker quiz.
This will be a multiple-choice test which may be attempted as many times as is required in order to achieve the pass mark.
