Level 1 COSHH Awareness Training Course - Target Audience

Hazardous substances are found in most working environments and annually thousands of workers become ill after contact with them, contracting diseases such as asthma, cancer and dermatitis. 

The Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) Regulations 2002 provides a legal framework that requires employers to protect employees from hazardous substances at work and to ensure that employees liable to be exposed to a substance hazardous to health are suitably and sufficiently informed, instructed and trained.

This general awareness level 1 course is for employees and employers who require a knowledge of the COSHH regulations and how to understand a COSHH assessment. The course meets the training and awareness requirements of the relevant legislation and regulations including COSHH and the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974. An advanced level 2 COSHH Regulations course that details how to carry out a COSHH assessment is available in our catalogue. It also meets the requirements of CHAS, SafeContractor, Construction line, Exor and other SSIP registrations plus HSE safety training requirements.

Online COSHH Training Course - Accreditation and Certification

ROSPA Assured Certificate

Successful candidates will receive a ROSPA Assured Certificate and 1 CPD Credit.

This course certificate has no expiry date because there is no formally recognised period of validity for any health and safety training or this type of course. The HSE recommends refresher training is carried out whenever it is felt necessary. Safety registration bodies such as CHAS, SafeContractor, ConstructionLine & SMAS and other members of the SSiP scheme recommend most re-training is done every 3 years. We would recommend refreshing knowledge as and when legislation or guidance changes applicable to these regulations.

All of our courses, systems and services have been registered to the internationally recognised ISO 9001:2015 quality standard. Quality Management Systems Ltd (QMS) made this prestigious award to Commodious in January 2018. This gives assurance that the training and assessment was completed with a quality registered organisation.

Objectives of COSHH Awareness Training - Level 1

Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) Regulations 2002 go by various acronyms and shortenings. Hazardous to health regs, health regs 2002, or simply COSHH, the most widely used is COSHH so we refer to the regulations as the COSHH regs.

This level 1 online COSHH awareness course will help organisations meet their legal obligations and provide candidates with a thorough awareness of the dangers associated with hazardous substances and the management and control measures required to control the risks.

After completing the course, candidates will:

  • Have knowledge of the hazardous substances commonly found in the workplace;

  • Understand how exposure to hazardous substances can cause harm;

  • Have knowledge of the legal and regulatory framework that underpins the control of substances hazardous to health (COSHH);

  • Be aware of the methods required to assess the risk from hazardous substances (Understand a COSHH assessment);

  • Be aware of the management and control requirements to ensure that risks are controlled (COSHH assessments);

  • Effectively understand how to act in emergency situations.

COSHH Training - Course Structure

The level 1 course comprises 3 interactive modules and a final assessment. Links to recommended reading and additional resources may be provided within the training modules. These links are not mandatory and will not be tested for in the final assessment.


It takes approximately 45 minutes to complete the course in full. This can be spread out over multiple sessions or completed in a single session. There is no time limit for completion.


All candidates must complete a multiple choice assessment after working through the training material. The candidate will be asked 12 multiple choice questions, randomly chosen from a larger question pool, and need to answer a minimum of 9 correctly to pass. Candidates will be given instant feedback after completing the assessment stating whether they have passed or failed. The assessment can be re-taken as many times as is required to pass at no additional cost.
